Plan Quality Management (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Project managers need to build quality into their projects at the very beginning, during the planning stage. Quality managers have to ensure that quality requirements are met. The Project Quality Management Knowledge Area takes these facts into consideration. It not only includes processes for assuring and controlling quality, but it also includes a process for ensuring that quality is considered from the very beginning of a project's life cycle. In this course, learners will be given an overview of the Project Quality 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 the three processes in the Quality Management Knowledge Area and how they fit into the project management Process Groups. This course also covers, in detail, the Plan Quality Management process. This process helps project managers identify the relevant quality standards for a project and then determine how to satisfy those requirements. 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.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

There is no question that project quality is essential in ensuring project success. A quality management plan identifies quality requirements and provides all project stakeholders with documented guidelines for delivering a quality product or service. But the question is how do you ensure that the quality management plan will work? How do you know that those guidelines will, if followed, result in a successful project? The quality management plan must be audited and measured consistently and efficiently to ensure that it is both adequate and adhered to. In this course, learners will be given an overview of the Perform Quality Assurance and Control Quality processes within the Project Quality 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 the tools and techniques used in quality assurance, such as quality audits and performing a process analysis. They'll also learn quality control tools, such as cause and effect diagrams, statistical sampling, and inspection. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam and provide 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.

Quality Management for Continuous Improvement

Consistently providing high-quality products and services requires use of continuous process improvement initiatives and adherence to applicable industry standards. Using lessons learned in combination with continuous improvement initiatives creates a powerful feedback loop that support process improvement. Industry standards for quality and process improvement provide a benchmark for verifying the results. In this course, you'll learn about the tools and methodologies used for continuous quality improvement, such as Lean, Six Sigma, kanban, and value stream analysis. You'll also learn about international quality standards such as ISO, CMMI®, BS, and IEEE. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam and provide 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.
