Introduction to Project Management

Untitled design (7)

Description

Successful organizations rely on skilled project managers to accomplish their goals and objectives. The need for effective project managers is greater than ever in today’s ever-changing and world-wide landscape. Businesses, non-profit organizations, and government entities all develop and implement projects, as do individuals in their personal lives. Effective project managers typically use tried-and-true project management principles, tools, and techniques to accomplish the desired outcomes.

What do successful project managers do?  How do they do it? 

The instructors of this course will introduce project management concepts and offer guidance and examples of how to develop and complete a project from start to finish with an emphasis on the project planning phase. Among other things, you will learn about:

  • the differences (and similarities) between the traditional “waterfall” approach and an “agile” approach to project management, and how a hybrid approach is evolving.
  • the importance of developing clear project scope statements and how to break the work into manageable activities.
  • how to prepare effective communication, stakeholder engagement, risk management, and other project plans.
  • several project management tools, including project software options, commonly used in projects today.  

Enroll in this class to raise your awareness of how project management skills can help you add value to your organization (and even to your personal projects)!
