Project Management Essentials
610- 330 Bay St
This is our most popular course designed to give new project managers and project team members the essential tools they need to deliver successful projects. We cover the complete project lifecycle: from initiating, through project planning and execution, to project close-out.
As well as great learning experience for an individual, this course is also suited for “jump-starting” an entire project team. Like our other courses, it can be customized to your organization’s environment.
Participants will gain practical skills to:
Use the terminology and processes of modern project management–project scope, time, cost, and communications management.
Prepare a Project Charter and Project Plan.
Facilitate team discussions in preparing project plans and in executing projects.
Utilize project management templates.
Value the benefits of a consistent project management method.
