Establish a robust project baseline and a comprehensive plan for a complex, high value data centre expansion project that demonstrates an accurate interpretation of the project scope and focuses on delivering project success in support of business strategy.
Working as a critical member of a multi-disciplinary project team, you will make a significant impact by exhibiting strong leadership qualities, optimising tools and processes to implement effective stage management to ensure product quality and financial control.
Driven by the exponential demand for data processing and storage, and the need to bring services closer to the customer (the edge), the pressure to deliver additional data centre facilities is a constant challenge for owners and operators. Highly skilled and dedicated project managers provide the confidence that facilitates the extension, build and renovation of facilities that contribute to the expansion of the global data centre footprint.
The comprehensive Certified Data Centre Project Management (CDCPM®) program is designed to provide in-depth knowledge into the application of processes, procedures, skills, knowledge and experience to deliver successful data centre projects. The program first invites learners to evaluate the personal attributes that contribute to developing a successful project manager and prioritises the main characteristics to consider.
Successful project management requires clear visibility of the organisational strategy and recognition of the importance of gaining maximum contribution from all project stakeholders. Situational awareness is key to proactivity, it enables managers to positively impact risk, have the foresight to accurately predict adverse outcomes and develop actions to prevent catastrophic failure of the project.
With a focus on a ‘concept to closure’ theme, the CDCPM® examines traditional principles and processes and tailors project management tools to the unique requirements of a critical infrastructure project. Tools such as Organisational Breakdown Structure (OBS), Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), Programme Evaluation Review Techniques (PERT), Critical Path Analysis (CPA) and Earned Value Analysis (EVA) are all utilised throughout the program.
The program also examines the evaluation techniques that determine the success of the project, or the lessons that need to be learned to improve future projects. This activity poses questions. Was the project completed on time/on budget? Was it completed to the right quality standard? Have the strategic business benefits been realised and was the risk profile managed effectively?
Project management experience would be advantageous, along with previous experience in a relevant technical discipline. Learners at this level should be able to analyse, interpret and evaluate relevant information, concepts and ideas. Completion of the Certified Telecommunications Project Management (CTPM®) program would be an advantage
CDCPM® certified individuals will possess unrivalled knowledge, expertise and capability to deliver complex data centre projects.
