Social Hour is 5:30-6:30

Presentation is 7:15 - 8:30
Steven Wageman, Director of Education and Training at MWH Global, will preview his paper on Schedule Management and Change Control that he is presenting in July at the AACEi Annual meeting in Atlanta.
Appropriate management and control of changes to the scope, schedule, and cost baselines of a project is critical to performance measurement and success, particularly when earned value management is an executive or client requirement. In this paper, project baseline management and change control will be defined, the conditions for and timing of formal change control will be described, and several best practices related to baseline change control will be detailed. Best practices include establishing clear roles for key stakeholders of change control, understanding and managing the differences between the project management and product development life cycles, maintaining historical performance metrics, employing the block point concept for managing multiple changes, and using appropriate baseline change control mechanics within common scheduling tools such as Primavera Project Management 6.2 and Primavera Project Planner for Windows 3.1.
Steven W. Wageman possesses nearly 30 years of general and project management experience, and is currently the Director of Education and Training Programs at MWH Global, Inc. He has specialized expertise in scheduling, cost estimating, earned value management, risk management, and training. Steve is a Certified Cost Consultant, Planning and Scheduling Professional, and Earned Value Professional through AACE International, as well as a Project Management Professional through the Project Management Institute. He is also an Authorized Oracle Primavera Instructor.
