Project Management Fundamentals

The evolution of business strategies has increased the importance of management having a thorough understanding of the products they produce. More and more employees are getting promoted from within to become project managers as they fully understand what they are producing and how best to meet the quality and quantity requirements set out by executive management. Project management, as a process, is the supervision and control of the work required to complete the project deliverable. Using established processes, coupled with the experience and skills of experienced workers, employers are able to develop project management skills from within.

Project Management for Non-project Managers Simulation

The likelihood an employee will be elevated to a position of authority within a project team increases as the employee gains experience and tenure. Yet experience alone is seldom sufficient to guarantee a smooth transition. Success is dependent upon a number of management and leadership skills that potential project managers must quickly come to master if they hope to fulfill upper management's expectations. The simulation Project Management for Non-project Managers is designed to provide participants with the opportunity to practice project management skills in a secure, virtual environment before facing the challenge of an actual, real-world project. Over the course of the simulation, participants will be tested on the objectives of transitioning to project manager, managing an imposed project team, demonstrating effective leadership, monitoring project activities and quality, maintaining control of a project, and problem solving and recovering. The simulation Project Management for Non-project Managers comprises three scenarios and is based on the SkillSoft Series "Project Management for Non-project Managers." Throughout the simulation, links are provided to the following SkillSoft courses: PROJ_01_a01, PROJ_01_a02, PROJ_01_a04, and PROJ_01_a05.
