In this comprehensive course, you will learn the fundamentals of project management: how to initiate, plan, and execute a project that meets objectives and satisfies stakeholders.

Aligned with the Project Management Institute (PMI) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK Guide) � Fifth Edition, 2013, this course provides a step-by-step guide to planning and executing a project. Working through case studies with real-world scenarios, you will interact with fellow students to learn and apply the methodologies and good practices of formal project management.

You will discover the approaches and techniques that make project managers successful, covering topics such as:

  • Analyzing stakeholders
  • Defining expectations
  • Defining project deliverables
  • Analyzing scope
  • Developing schedules
  • Mitigating risk
  • Contingency planning
  • Establishing and applying effective change controls
  • Performance reporting
  • Communicating status to project stakeholders

During class, project management theory will be interspersed with practical, hands-on workshops. Seventy percent of class time is dedicated to experience-based skills development. In the remaining class time, you will learn about methodologies and put practical skills into context.

PMP and PMI are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
