Private and governmental organizations conduct a variety of projects every year, some with excellent results, but far too many of them do not achieve the intended results, cost more or take longer than intended, or are simply abandoned. Projects that are not well managed, and therefore go awry, are a drain on productivity and overall organizational effectiveness.

Upon successful completion of this seven hour course, students will understand beginning to intermediate project management concepts and techniques that will greatly increase your odds of successfully managing projects. The course is organized according to the five process areas of initiation, planning, execution, control, and closeout. Learn the detailed project initiation and planning steps that will set the stage for success before you begin a project. Also covered are: quality assurance to maintain high quality work products; communicating with your team and customers; staying on top of budgets, schedules, and scope issues; and related topics such as controlling and protecting your valuable electronic documents.
