This class will explain what Project Management is and provide tools for understanding, and participating in, a Project. We'll cover how to write a clear and concise project statement, the basic phases of Project Management, and how to set up the project with measurable outcomes.
We work through an example together that highlights how to set up the schedule, break a project down to manageable tasks, and talk about the reality of working on a Project while maintaining existing/ongoing workloads. We'll also discuss tools to track your Project, ways to minimize risk associated with the Project, and review a glossary of Project Management terms.
Projects without proper management tools are 'wish lists' instead of 'plans'. Using Project Management (PM) techniques from the Project Management Institute (PMI) increases the likelihood that projects will be completed on time and to target.
