Managing Project Work (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Most projects experience problems and unforeseen events that pose a threat to successful completion. Thankfully there are many proven project management processes designed to direct, monitor, and control project work. For example, project baselines for schedule, cost, scope, and quality give the project manager a firm foundation by which to monitor project work and make decisions. When problems arise, strategies for managing changes help get the project back in line. This course will equip project managers with skills to manage change in an integrated fashion so that, for example, changes to scope are reflected appropriately in the quality, schedule, and cost baselines. The Project Integration Management Knowledge Area includes six processes, ranging from the creation of the project charter at the beginning of a project through to the close of a project or phase. This course covers the inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs of the third and fourth processes: Direct and Manage Project Work and Monitor and Control Project Work. Through interactive learning strategies and realistic scenarios, you will explore these concepts and gain a better understanding of the project integration processes in action. This course will assist in preparing learners for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), Inc., 2013.

Using Lessons Learned for Continuous Improvement

Every project comes with its own unique challenges. There is valuable learning that takes place as project team members solve problems and persevere through challenges to meet their objectives. Preserving and passing on all that new knowledge and wisdom is what the concept of 'lessons learned' is all about. Effective project managers take lessons from current projects forward into planning and executing future projects, thereby enabling continuous improvement. Collecting and using lessons learned results in fewer mistakes, lower costs, more accurate estimates, and many other efficiencies. In this course, you'll learn about the basic steps involved in collecting, analyzing, and passing on lessons learned so that organizations are able to grow and experience superior performance.
  • identify characteristics of lessons learned
  • distinguish between different types of knowledge
  • sequence the steps for conducting lessons learned
  • identify sources of lessons learned
  • recognize best practices for conducting a lessons learned meeting
  • select tools and methods for analyzing lessons learned information
  • recognize activities that lead to successful lessons learned implementation
  • recognize issues that should be included in a lessons learned report
  • recognize how best practices and benchmarking support continuous improvement
  • demonstrate your understanding of lessons learned

Project Initiation and the Project Charter (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Collaboration, coordination, and consolidation are terms to describe integration. Project Integration Management is the Knowledge Area that coordinates with various Process Groups to ensure that each project is managed in a unified and consolidated way. The intention is to have processes interact smoothly. In this course, learners will be given an overview of the Project Integration Management Knowledge Area. They'll be introduced to best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, learners will be introduced to Project Integration Management and its processes, the project charter, including the statement of work and business case. They'll also be introduced to the project management plan. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013.

Change Control and Project Close-out (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Change is inevitable. Environmental, technological, legislative, and economical changes can have an immeasurable impact on individuals and organizations. In addition to these changes, a project environment could see change requests for additional features and functions from stakeholders. As a project manager, you can mitigate risk by monitoring and controlling changes to time, cost, scope, and product quality. Controlling change will also effectively assist in closing projects or phases by ensuring approved changes are implemented and signed off by stakeholders. This course will equip project managers with the tools and techniques to manage project change in an integrated fashion and to close out phases and projects so that all aspects are brought to a controlled close. The Project Integration Management Knowledge Area includes six processes, ranging from the creation of the project charter at the beginning of a project through to the close of a project or phase. This course covers the inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs of the fifth and sixth processes: Perform Integrated Change Control and Close Project or Phase. Through interactive learning strategies and realistic scenarios, you will explore these concepts and gain a better understanding of project integration processes in action. This course will assist in preparing learners for the PMI® certification exam.
