Project Management - Intermediate

Project Management - Intermediate

Most of us are expected to complete assignments that are not a usual part of our job and to get the job done well, within a budget, and on time - often causing us stress. Successful project management is about keeping calm and maintaining focus during these times - just like an eagle waiting to catch its prey. This course will share some project management techniques that can help you achieve your goals. 

Objectives

In this course, you will focus on the last three stages of the project life cycle: planning, execution, and termination. This includes identifying tasks and resources; using scheduling techniques like the work breakdown structure, Gantt charts, and network diagrams; preparing a budget; executing a project; and controlling changes.
