Course Description

Project Management has become a key skill for success in many organizations…and the people leading the projects are often not Certified Project Managers. They are still expected to effectively manage any project – large or small – that is assigned to them. With this pressure, “lacking the fundamentals of Project Management” was identified as one of the challenges experienced by employees. This course provides learners with fundamental skills and tools required to effectively manage a project. They will learn elements of the role of a Project Manager, including identifying project scope, creating project management documentation, building and managing a project plan and communicating for success. The goal is to help ensure learners have the skills and knowledge to support effective project management in the workplace and potentially start them on their path to certification.
