Project Management Essentials

The Challenge
Within virtually every enterprise there is growing understanding of just how crucial successful projects are to the bottom line. After all, our ability to reach Strategic Objectives largely depends on the success of our major initiatives. In parallel with this understanding is the realization that all levels of the organization must become conversant with the primary principles of project management. It is only through a shared understanding of how projects are chosen, funded, planned and executed that we can truly become proficient at achieving regular project success.

Participants are taught standard vocabulary and then shown how projects are designed, executed and controlled. They are shown scope definition and management, status reporting, risk management, cost control, communication techniques and much more. The format includes a mixture of short exercises, group discussions and lecture. In clear and simple language, this course explains what it takes to bring a project to a successful conclusion.
