Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • select the project opportunities that align with the organisational strategic and financial goals
  • review and validate, high priority projects to be undertaken based on the trade-offs between benefits, risks and scarce financial resources
  • develop the schedule and budget for selected projects, to enable ongoing earned value performance measurement
  • review project performance and initiate appropriate corrective actions and audit activity, where necessary
  • establish and monitor, an agreed project benefits realisation plan.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • outline appropriate cost management and estimating methodologies, techniques and tools, their capabilities and limitations, applicability and outcomes
  • discuss business and commercial issues
  • discuss cost schedule control systems
  • outline the processes of delegation and the management of responsibilities for cost management
  • discuss the differences in work content, risk, processes, tools and techniques that apply in the various phases of recurring project life cycles, within a volatile program environment
  • explain the direction of project development and the management of program budgets
  • outline human resource management policies
  • discuss how to apply the principles and techniques relating to:
  • negotiation
  • risk management, including risk sharing and transfer
  • outline the organisational guidance and attitudes to cost management
  • outline organisational procurement guidelines

  • relevant strategic level enterprise documentation, including:
  • planning
  • financial
  • ICT infrastructure
  • organisational policies.
