Modern projects are in the clutches of constant pressure. They must deliver more with less, while meeting short schedules and tight budgets. Unfortunately, too many projects fail at this challenge. This class shows you how to organize small to medium size projects, then work with a team to accomplish them on schedule and within budget. Participants learn practical and proven project management techniques, then immediately apply them to real projects as in-class teams.

Topics include:

  • Starting a project on a firm foundation by defining it clearly, then getting alignment among the stakeholders
  • Visual tools for building a good plan that addresses the how, when, and who of the project
  • Executing the plan, monitoring progress, steering, and making changes
  • Properly closing a project, including how to learn lessons for future improvement

The class includes proven techniques researched by the Project Management Institute, the global professional body for project management.
