Project Management Essentials

Renowned Project Management expert Cornelius Fichtner once said, “The ‘P’ is as much about ‘People’ management as it is about ‘Project’ management." A project can be differentiated from ongoing business operations in that it is "a temporary endeavor to create a unique product or service" (Chatfield and Johnson, 2000). Within this short definition can be found the basic "project triangle": time, cost, and performance. In this course, you will explore the "art" of project management-the continual balancing of these three areas throughout the process of planned and unplanned events to arrive at a successful completion.

Program Deliverables:

- Understand the basic principles of project management/project teams
- Evaluate likely project risks and develop appropriate response strategies
- Monitor the key project issues of schedule, budget, and performance deliverables and develop problem responses
