Project management is the discipline of using established principles, procedures and policies to manage a project from conception through completion. Organizations large and small across all business sectors have recognized the value of project management as a way of controlling spending, improving predictability of schedule, and improving the quality of project results. Project management has become a recognized strategic organizational competence. Almost assuredly, in your professional career you will be part of a project team, supervise someone who is on a project team, or need to interface with a project team.
This course will provide you the basics of project management as formalized in the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)®. The purpose of the course is to provide you with an understanding of the structure, terminology, procedures, and concepts of project management through planning, structuring, risk and ambiguous threats, scheduling, executing complex projects in challenging environments, and learning from projects. The course will be entirely online and will utilize lectures, case studies, individual assignments, and a group project.
