Mastering Project Management: Strategies for Success (WPG029-62)


with Cesar Rodas

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 25, 2024 at 1 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Project Management is more about managing expectations than dates.  Effectively managing multiple projects, resources, and budgets is critical in today's global business environment.  This Project Management course will dive into the roles and responsibilities of the project manager and examine project management in theory as well as in practice.  The course offers a practical approach to managing projects, without requiring any previous project management experience.  We will focus on organizing, planning, and controlling the deliverables of the project using good practices.

Students will participate in structured workshops where simulated project plans are designed and implemented. At the end of the course, students will understand why project management requires a high degree of professionalism and attention to detail, and how to achieve that end in future projects.

We will examine project management roles, the project lifecycle, and various techniques of work planning, control, and evaluation to achieve project objectives using system tools and project management philosophies.
