Managing a project team may be the most critical skill required for a project manager, especially since most project managers don’t have direct authority over the individuals on the team. This course will address tools and techniques for managing teams and other stakeholders in order to successfully complete a project. Topics include:

- Quantitative risk analysis
- Risk response planning
- Risk monitoring and control
Project managers need to successfully manage two types of change: project-level change and organizational-level change. Project change addresses the impact of change on budgets, schedules and scope. Organizational change address how a project will impact the people and processes in all or part of an organization. Strategies for smoothing the change curve include communication, training and process change management. In this course we will also explore change control planning, tracking and monitoring.
