Detailed Course Description
Project management is the process of leading the work of a team to achieve goals and meet success criteria at a specified time. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints. The primary constraints are scope, time, and budget. The secondary challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and apply them to meet defined objectives.
Successful project management has several significant characteristics that are discussed and explained, in detail, in this online course. To understand the value of project management, it is necessary to understand the fundamental nature of a project; the core characteristics of project management processes; how success is evaluated, the roles, responsibilities, and activities of a project manager, and the expertise required; and the context in which projects are performed.
This online course will provide you with the building blocks to successfully manage projects and also understand all the phases, tasks, objectives, roles and responsibilities that feed into successful project plans and execution from a program manager.
