Projects are temporary ventures aimed at producing a unique product, service, or process. In many cases, this uniqueness means there aren't any clear blueprints or steps in place to achieve the end goal. Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to reduce project ambiguity and risk while increasing the chance of successfully achieving project objectives. It provides a framework through which managers and team members can balance the constraints of scope, time, cost, and quality without sacrificing project requirements.
In this course you will learn leading approaches to Project Management as defined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide). PMBOK is a globally recognized standard for project management. It provides guidelines for managing individual projects and for understanding project life cycles.
The course will lead you through a progression of Project Management concepts and techniques in alignment with the PMBOK’s five major Project Management Process Groups:
- Monitoring and Controlling
Within each area, the course will incorporate and address other key project management success factors such as leadership, team building, stakeholder engagement, and communication. The course will also address other leading project management approaches such as Agile and SCRUM to discuss how they complement and enhance the PMBOK approach.
- Gain an understanding of the project management principles, concepts, tools, and techniques applied across successful organizations and the global standards from which they are derived.
- Empower you with the vocabulary and knowledge needed to function at a high level in project leadership and supporting roles.
- Apply concepts learned in in the session to your personal or professional projects.
- Discuss how to best adopt and standardize Project Management processes and tools.
