What you'll learn in this it project management training:

Project management has become one of the hottest jobs in the market today.

Many growing organizations have come to recognize the need for project managers in the wake of expanding operations and project teams. It’s not uncommon for designers, developers, and entrepreneurs to find themselves cast in the role of project manager, even if many of these responsibilities fall well outside their job description. This is also a good time to “break into” the profession of project management for folks who work in a different capacity at their organization.

Our course will focus specifically on the basics of project management for beginners. This is helpful whether you’ve recently found yourself cast in the role of project manager by your company, or whether you’re looking to make a career transition.

We will cover everything from project planning, project management methodologies (Agile and Waterfall), running meetings, to the “soft skills” needed to successfully facilitate a project. We’ll also explore the major project management tools in the marketplace. You’ll gain the tools that you’ll need to deliver great results.

Takeaways
  • An overview of the two popular pm methodologies: traditional project management and Agile
  • How to create a project schedule, budget, and resource plan
  • How to assess risk and anticipate future problems in the project lifecycle
  • Proven techniques for meeting management
  • How to communicate effectively with clients, stakeholders and the project team
Prereqs & Preparation
Prior to the workshop, students will receive a project worksheet. They will need to complete Section 1 of the worksheet, Describe Your Upcoming Project, before the start of class. Together we will complete the remainder of the worksheet during class. If you also have any specific challenges in mind with regards to current or past projects, please bring them with you!

Students will need to bring a laptop or writing materials to take notes with.
