This course is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the field and practice of project management (PM). Topics include 

  • Understanding what projects really are 
  • Understanding the relationship between time, cost and scope (“the triple constraint”) 
  • Putting the Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s) knowledge areas to work, and 
  • An introduction to various methodologies such as traditional, agile and extreme project management. 

The course is designed for anyone who may have staff working on projects as well as individuals who will be engaged in formal projects at any level. 

This course provides an overview of project planning activities including how to create a project schedule. Topics include: 

  • Creating a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) 
  • Adding tasks and creating project milestones 
  • Accounting for human resources 
  • Tracking time and costs associated with each task 
  • Defining task dependencies

This course provides a high-level introduction to budgeting for projects. Topics covered include: 

  • Defining cost categories (labor, materials, software, hardware) 
  • Fixed vs variable costs 
  • Cost benefit analyses 
  • Impact of project changes on the budget. 

Today, more and more organizations are using non-traditional project management methodologies to manage initiatives for a faster and more agile completion. In this course we will discuss: 

  • What are the most common agile approaches (Iterative, Scrum, SAFe) and their characteristics? 
  • The Agile Manifesto 
  • Challenges and solutions for transitioning organizations to an agile environment 
  • Agile tools and techniques 
  • Extreme project management. 

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: 

  • Creating project organizations 
  • Conflict resolution 
  • Meeting management 
  • Global and virtual project teams 
  • Communication management 

This course will assist PMs to differentiate between project risks and issues and discuss approaches for identifying and controlling them. Risk analysis (identification, prioritization and mitigation strategies) are explored in detail guided by PMI’s processes for Risk Management: 

  • Risk management planning 
  • Risk identification 
  • Qualitative risk analysis 
  • 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.
