• Perform critical path analysis, “crashing,” and “fast-tracking” to meet project requirements;
• Manage scope;
• Create a project staffing plan;
• Discuss the role of a change management plan;
• Develop and apply a communications management plan;
• Develop realistic, “detailed,” “bottom-up” estimates of the effort, duration, and budget; and
• Calibrate estimates based on resource assignments.
