Project management is an integral part of many jobs. Whether you are a small-business owner developing a unique product, a manager in a global firm, or an engineer in a startup, mastery of project management will increase your chances of delivering products and services on time and within budget while giving your customers the product they expect. This hands-on course will strengthen your project management skills through case-study analysis and the development of a management plan for a selected project. You will explore such project management tools as the work breakdown structure, the RACI matrix (responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed), and Microsoft Project software. Additionally, you will learn how to define and manage scope, build a schedule and budget, define and allocate resources, minimize and manage risk, and create a proven performance measurement system that allows you to confidently communicate project status to your customers and stakeholders. By the end of this course, you will have a strong working knowledge of the basics of project management, helping you to immediately start managing projects more effectively. Business and engineering students, software and product developers, small-business owners, managers, and anyone currently managing projects will benefit from this course.
