When I started my career effort estimates were such a nightmare for me. They were really keeping me up at night and I was thinking what can I do to get it right. In the last decade since I've been working as a project manager, I tried a lot of effort estimation techniques. Some have been working for me, some didn't.

In this class I'm sharing with you the knowledge and experience that I learn in over 10 years:

  1. Methods of estimations which I use and that gave me the best results in over 100 projects that I managed
  2. My methods of crosschecking that the effort estimated in projects are covering the team effort and entire company is sustainable
  3. My secret principle that I use every day to estimate and to get better: bases of the estimation principle
  4. Analysis of the most common causes of effort deviations and how to apply the bases of the estimation principle in each situation
  5. How to can improve your effort estimations

In this class I bring 2 innovative principles:

1. Document your estimations - bases of the estimations principle

2. Keep the baseline you based your estimations on - because if the conditions don't change there is a high change your estimations will be right

Is this course for you?

  • Do you want to learn the most effective and proven estimation techniques?
  • Do you want to learn to verify if your effort estimations are correct?
  • Do you want to learn what's the bases of the estimation principle and how did I apply it successfully in over 100 projects?
  • Do you want to learn how the bases of the estimation principle can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars? 
  • Do you want to learn how to prevent deviations from the estimations?
  • Do you want to learn how the environment will affect your estimates and will ruin your project budget? And HOW TO AVOID THAT? 

YES! YES! YES! Let's do it!

Hello and welcome to Construction Measurements & Quantity Estimation online course.

This course is all about quantity takeoff and detailed BOQ preparation after reviewing the project documents and understanding the scope of work which is a very good introduction to construction estimating and project pricing.

The course is structured in a way that will take you from A to Z on how to prepare a quantified BOQ from scratch based on project drawings and specs.

This course is very much recommended for you if you meet any of the below criteria:

1 - If you want to learn quantity takeoff and measurements from zero.

2 - If you have some quantity takeoff knowledge but you are slow in measurements.

3 - If you don't know which takeoff software that you should use or you want to expedite the process and maximize the outcome.

4 - If you want to be able to present your quantities in an undeniable / unarguable manner (very helpful in case of variations).

Professional Project Management By A Top 1% Project Manager

Project planning, management on time & budget using Trello, Asana, Jira! Prevent scope creep, make correct estimations

Do you see other people getting their projects done while you struggle with scope creep and are late on deadlines?

Do you want to know how to keep your projects organized and have realistic estimates?

At the beginning of my project management career, I read all the project management books, articles, and case studies that I could handle. BUT the reality of day to day projects was that after few weeks in a project, all the estimates were obsolete and things were getting out of control.

What am I doing wrong? - I was continuously asking myself. 

Why are we bad in doing estimates? 

How do I stop the clients from changing their mind and continuously adding to the project scope?

Is it because tracking change requests doesn't keep me away from scope creep, but pushes me away of project completion?

It took me years to truly learn what it takes to keep a projects on track and to successfully deliver them.

The key for my project management success has been "stealing the job" from the other successful project managers. I learned and I asked the other project managers who I admired, HOW they do it? How they literally define the scope, how they lead a meeting, how they manage the team, how they do the estimations so they can complete the project up to the client's satisfaction?

Learning how others do it is what made me a successful project manager. 

So I made this course to start giving back from my knowledge which is the product of many years of work.

This course is a strictly practical course. I use 3 different projects examples: 

  • Opening a coffee shop
  • Launching a coaching business  
  • An IT project

Using real examples, I'll walk you through everything you should to consider in your projects:

  1. How to define the scope and manage your scope to avoid scope creep? I'll take exact examples of scope components, define them and show you how to manage it in real life situations. You'll see how I manage the scope in different situations.
  2. How important it is to define the quality of your project deliverables and how to do it so it doesn't look overwhelming.
  3. Team management from the project perspective.
  4. Who are the stakeholders, who we should consider? Who are the ones you should focus your energy on? 
  5. Time management in practice. This will not be about methods and formulas. I will show you how to move from "we made bad estimations" to an objective analysis of the assumptions we make when making estimations and how to see that information for a better time management in projects.
  6. What we should communicate in projects and how? How to share the information with the team so it makes their work more enjoyable, and how defining the communication expectations can prevent so many issues.
  7. What are the positive risks and how to maximize them and how risk assessment can take your project to the next level.

I'll show you all that with step-by-step examples of how to do it. No theory, no stories, BUT real life successful and failing projects. This is what makes this course perfect for both professional project managers but also for entrepreneurs and team members.

For whom is this course?

  • Business Owners
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Project managers
  • Team members
  • EVERYBODY who works in projects

What this course can do for you?

You can take your own projects and work with me in the same time to all the asptects of the project.
At the end of the course you will have a completely defined project scope, an organised project and you will know how to manage it.

You can also take a running project and work with me to update it while taking the course.
In that case, at the end of the course you will have an organized project and you will know what you need to do to keep it on track.

The purpose of the maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) is to find or tune the parameters of the distribution  in a way to explain the data  OR  how to learn the distribution/ model parameters from this data?

The purpose of fitting distribution to this data is to find the parameters of the distribution such that using those parameters we can extract more data of similar nature.

Maximum likelihood will look for the values of parameters that maximizes the likelihood function that is the value of parameters that says that this data is most likely to belong this distribution.

In this course, students will learn about the fundamental concept of Maximum likelihood Estimation, Parameters of Maximum Likelihood Estimation, Derivations of the Parameters, Solved Example on Maximum Likelihood Estimation. By the end of this course, students will be able to derive the parameters from the distribution. For brevity, we are only covering Gaussian distribution in this course since  Gaussian is the most commonly used distribution.

Following is the breakdown of the course.

Why learn Construction Cost Estimation

It’s pretty much impossible to underestimate the importance of cost estimation when it comes to successfully completing a construction project. Before even approaching a project, it’s vital to handle cost estimation to help keep you on track and in touch with project constraints and limitations. Cost estimation enables you to achieve what you say you're going to accomplish within the financial constraints executives and stakeholders give you. As one of the defining features of successful progress, accurate project cost estimation must take a front seat when it comes to setting up a project's parameters.

If you’re someone considering construction management or cost estimation as a career, you must master estimation skills. That will help you complete construction projects within a pre-fixed budget and with well-estimated labour.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for cost estimators was $66,610 in May 2020, and the median annual wage for construction managers was $97,180 in May 2020. It is projected to grow 8% from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.
