Course Outline
Learn project management techniques and best practices in this updated version of Project Management Essentials, the 2006 PMI Product of the Year award winner.

This course will teach you how to effectively manage all phases of a project. You'll learn the project management framework of initiation, planning, execution, control, and formal closing, and discover what it takes to ensure project success. In this skills-building course, you'll focus on practical tools and techniques as you spend 75% of the course working on a project-from initiation to close. You'll work individually and in teams to write objectives, conduct stakeholder analysis, and develop a work breakdown structure and risk management plan for a case study project. Practice using estimating techniques, dependency analysis, and network diagramming. Leave class with the knowledge and tools to immediately get your projects done on time, within budget, and to specification.

Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.

Course was very detailed but more time would be helpful during workshops. An additional day would help lessen the course load.
