Part 1 - Six Elements of Project Controls; The Basics

By Lance Stephenson, CCP FAACE

 

"The six elements of project controls were first introduced to me through a training event in 1996 with Esso Canada. What was presented to me at the time was actually the six elements of project management. From that point on, my goal was to further expand these elements into the project controls domain and the Total Cost Management Framework."
