Project Fundamentals teaches the art and science of delivering successful projects. Over the course of two days, you will learn how to apply the processes, techniques, and tools needed to effectively plan a project. You will also understand how to execute and monitor the plan in order to successfully close the project.
During the course, you’ll learn how to define the scope and goals of your project, how to create a schedule, draft a budget and integrate risk by anticipating what could go wrong. The course will also focus on leadership components, such as communication excellence and the very essence of project management—knowing how to lead a team.
