Project Management carries complex concerns, not always found in traditional Process Management. It is an important realization that “Project People” have additional skill and support requirements. This module introduces the tools and techniques being taught to Project Managers and team members. During this overview we explain and follow the globally endorsed PMI (Project Management Institute) model of Initiation, Planning, Executing, Controlling and Closing. Applicable real-world tools and techniques are also presented as they should be applied throughout the organization. The overall goals of the session are to introduce the key areas of project management and to inform management of their role in making projects successful.
This program is for non-technical executives and managers who do not necessarily run projects themselves, but manage and interact with those who do. Participants are introduced to concepts and tools taught in our TSE001-P5 Project Planning and Control workshop; it does not replace “PP&C Foundations”. Although the workshop does not teach the use of Microsoft Project, the proper use of MSP as a job aid within the organization is addressed.
Instructional methods for this three to four hour module include lecture, exercises and discussion. This workshop has been approved by PMI®, the Project Management Institute, to award 4 PDUs to those attendees holding the PMP® credential.
