Mastering Project Management (UMTPM012)   Register Online
 
Overview

Successful project management requires technical, process, and psychological skills. With this course, you learn how to bring these skill areas together to form the arsenal of tools needed to successfully achieve project objectives. Included are methods for making better decisions about projects, handling scheduling uncertainty, improving project management processes, and dealing with power and politics.

Special attention is given in this course to teaching participants to think like project managers – to be active instead of passive, to take responsibility for the project, and to take positive steps to keep on track. The reason for this emphasis is that we have found that many people learn the tools of project management, yet have no idea what is truly the role of a professional project manager.

Mastering Project Management is based on the work of Dr. James P. Lewis. Dr. Lewis is an adjunct professor at UMT who has conducted project management training for more than 20,000 supervisors and managers around the world. He is founder and president of The Lewis Institute.
