Fundamentals of Project Management

Course Description

Increase on-time project completion rate. Keep projects on budget. Improve quality. Effectively utilize team members and avoid “meeting burnout.” 

Fundamentals of Project Management will provide participants an adaptable toolkit for many different types of projects. Whether projects are simple and short term, or more complex and involve a higher degree of liability, all projects share core components related to planning and oversight. Understanding and utilizing a few standardized methods and procedures to prepare and launch a project will help keep it focused, on task, and driving toward on-time delivery. Throughout the day-long course, participants will alternate learning a concept with applying the information to a practice project. Participants are welcome to bring outlines of current and future projects to the class for insight.
