Topic Synopsis:

An engineering marvel for its time, the Panama Canal radically changed the world map and trade routes forever, but what challenges had to be met and overcome to successfully complete this project? The cost of $380 Million of the American project to build the canal pales in comparison to the fact that over 5,000 workers perished during its construction. The numbers of the French project are even more shocking. This presentation will look at the history of the Panama Canal and the planning and execution of the French and American projects from the perspective of the Knowledge Areas of the PMBOK® Guide, along with its incredible engineering, construction, and human challenges.

 

Learning Objectives:

1.  The importance of Enterprise Environmental Factors in planning and executing a project.

2.  The importance of domain expertise in selecting the appropriate project managers.

3.  The importance of innovation and “out of the box” thinking in project management.
