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 controling 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.
