Project Management – Back to Basics PM00.20

Click here to download this overview as a pdf.

Much of the work that you do can be organized as a project. The ability to successfully define and subsequently manage a project is quickly leaving the realm of the extraordinary and is becoming a core competency for many organizations. Managing a project is not easy and project management skills do not come naturally to many people – even to many “experienced” project managers. This class provides the foundation for experienced project managers that have not had prior formal training before. It is also a great refresher class for experienced project managers that would like to recap the value associated with rigorous and disciplined project management practices.
