A project management course for non-project managers. From time to time everyone has to manage a project. Understanding the basic process will help avoid re-work, inefficiencies and missed deadlines. Learning these techniques can help to improve project success ratio, saving both money and time.
THE ACCIDENTAL PROJECT MANAGER COURSE TOPICS:
This is a basic introduction to the fundamental concepts of formal project management methodology. The curriculum helps participants to understand project management terminology and the process. All content is related to the PEMBOK Guide®.
PROJECT MANAGMENT CONCEPTS COURSE TOPICS:
A more in-depth introductory course in project management. This program instructs the learners in the core project management methodology as presented in the PMBOK Guide®.
PROJECT MANAGMENT FUNDAMENTALS COURSE TOPICS:
An in-depth course to prepare participants to successfully complete the Project Management Professional Certification examination (PMP® exam). For those who attend the entire workshop, it meets the requirement for 35 hours of contact education necessary to register to take the PMP exam.
This workshop focuses on the materials included in the PMBOK Guide®, which is the principal source of questions on the PMP exam. It also includes materials from other authoritative sources of project management literature which are tested on the exam as well. Most modules include hands-on exercises, and each class ends with a quiz that tests the attendee’s retention of the materials in that module. On the last day of class a 100-question practice exam will be administered to test student readiness to take the final PMP exam. Participants are not required to share their results on either the quizzes or the final sample exam or achieve a particular score in order to get “credit” for this workshop.
A detailed study of risk management. The course covers the seven project risk management processes that comprise the Project Risk Management knowledge area in the PMBOK Guide®.
As projects produce unique deliverables there is a greater inherent level of risk in project work than there is in operations. The curriculum presents generally accepted practices in planning for risk, executing risk management responses, and monitoring risks throughout the life of a project. Hands-on practice with risk management tools and techniques gives students a chance to gain experience that they can immediately begin to implement in their work.
A detailed study of scope management, this course focuses on the identification, elaboration, planning and management of project scope, including selected processes from the Project Integration Management and Project Scope Management section of the PMBOK Guide®.
The class provides an overview of the project management framework to establish context for the six scope management process: Plan Scope Management; Collect Requirements; Define Scope; Create Work Breakdown Schedule; Validate Scope; and Control Scope. During the course, “best practices” will be introduced, and put into context through various exercises.
A course on identifying and engaging stakeholders, and effectively managing communications.
In today’s dynamically changing business environment, projects are initiated under tighter budgetary, resource and time constraints than ever before. Successful project management depends on the ability of project managers to identify and manage stakeholder engagement effectively, and their skill in communicating with a diverse collection of stakeholders who often have conflicting requirements and interests. This course presents the project stakeholder and communication management processes, identified in the PMBOK Guide®, that are required to manage a project.
