What you'll learn in this project management training:

Build a solid foundation of project management knowledge, techniques and tools in this hands-on workshop that covers the entire project life cycle.

Who Should Attend:

Individuals who are new to project management
“Accidental” project managers (professionals for whom PM is a secondary part of their jobs)
Business analysts; subject-matter experts from any field who contribute to projects; managers responsible for projects; and experienced project managers looking to review current tools, techniques and processes

As the business world grows more competitive, organizations find it necessary to take on an increasing number of projects. Unfortunately, these same organizations often don’t have skilled project managers to handle the work. In this seminar, you will learn and practice the critical tools and techniques that have been proven necessary for project
management success. In lectures, discussions and exercises, you’ll cover the essential aspect of managing projects.

While aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) framework, this course is specifically designed to focus on the practical application of concepts. You’ll return to work with the knowledge and tools you need to get your projects started right and completed successfully.
