Introduction to Project Management (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Project-based operations have become the norm in today's business world. In essence, almost every work effort is a project, from constructing a new building to designing and delivering a new information management system. As projects become the primary method for getting things done and effecting organizational change, it is crucial to choose a good and proven method for managing projects. However, projects cannot be properly managed in a silo. Every aspect of project management is affected by the organization, the social environment, the project's stakeholders, both internal and external, and many other aspects of the context in which the project is carried out. Understanding this context is critical to good planning and good decision-making as the project progresses toward achieving its objectives. This course provides an overview of the project management discipline as outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, it introduces the characteristics of a project, the responsibilities that accompany project management, and the differences between portfolios, programs, and projects. The course will identify key project management concepts and terms and provide information about the variables that can influence project outcomes. It will also cover the project stakeholders and the organizational influences on a project. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up–to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work in 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.

Project Fundamentals (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Every project is different. Some are small and straightforward. Others are large and complex. Most are somewhere in the middle. Even though every project is unique, they all have certain attributes in common. Every project has a similar life cycle, starting with an idea, progressing through development, and culminating in the delivery of a finished product or service. A product has a life cycle of its own which is tied into – yet distinct from – the life cycle of the project. All projects have similar overall phases, such as the start-up phase, the planning and design phase, the production phase, and the closing phase. That is all straightforward, but how do a project's phases relate to the stages of its life cycle? Do the natural phases of a project affect the way it is managed? And what types of project management processes should be applied to the specific phases? These are all fundamental questions project managers ask. This course answers these questions and more. It is designed to give project managers and project team members a solid understanding about the nature of projects, how they are structured, and how the structures affect the way they are managed. Specifically, it introduces the concepts of project life cycle, product life cycle, project phases, and project management Process Groups. It provides an in-depth look at how the project management phases interact with each other and with the elements of the project life cycle. The course illustrates these concepts through many examples of small and large projects. Learners will also be introduced to the fundamental source of information for project management professionals: the Project Management Institute (PMI®) and A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition published by PMI®. The course will identify key project management concepts and terms, explore the PMBOK® Guide, and the project management Knowledge Areas. 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.

The Process Groups (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Processes: a set of interrelated actions and activities performed to achieve a specified set of products, results, or services. Good processes, meaning those based on sound principles and proven practices, are a project manager's best friends. Following a set of established processes minimizes confusion and uncertainty for the project manager and all project stakeholders. It ensures the effective progress of the project from initiation through to close-out. In this course, learners will be given an overview of the project management Process Groups as defined 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 the following project management Process Groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing. Learners will also discover how the Process Groups interact with the ten Knowledge Areas: Project Integration Management, Project Scope Management, Project Time Management, Project Cost Management, Project Quality Management, Project Human Resource Management, Project Communications Management, Project Risk Management, Project Stakeholder Management, and Project Procurement Management. 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 learners for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013.
