Overview

When asked to define their jobs, project managers consistently report: “My job is to get the job done!” This course provides basic knowledge on what it takes to carry out projects effectively. It looks at standard project management tools and techniques and investigates the all-important human dimension of project management. It is a nuts-and-bolts course that presents participants with an overview of “everything you need to know” to manage projects effectively – from selecting projects with a range of prioritization techniques; to planning schedules, budgets, and resource allocations; to controlling projects once they are underway; to conducting periodic sanity checks to see that the project on fundamentally on-target; to closing out projects and assuring customer satisfaction.

The course places a heavy emphasis on the organizational context of project management. It looks at people-related topics such as how to manage tasks when you have responsibility without authority; how to structure project teams most effectively; and how to negotiate political waters.
