Project Management Fundamentals
In today’s increasingly matrixed work environment, managing projects that cross job functions, geographies, and seniority is increasingly commonplace. Yet it is estimated that up to 70% of projects do not meet their original objectives, stay within their defined scope, schedule or agreed-to budget.
Project Management Fundamentals covers an end-to-end project lifecycle based on the application of the critical knowledge areas of the Project Management Body of Knowledge - PMBoK®. It’s designed to be a practical, up-to-date perspective of the basics of project management and how you can use them to manage a variety of common business (and life) projects.
You will learn to scope, plan, lead and manage a project, including scheduling, budgeting and managing risk until the project closes. You’ll also look at some of the common reasons projects fail and how to overcome them.
Is this course right for you?
