This course introduces the concepts and methods of successful project management and develops the necessary skills in order to achieve it.

Often viewed as solely an administrative, or financial or technical function, project management is a hybrid of all the above, and then some. Although volumes have been written on this subject, it inevitably seems as if things are "different this time around" and yet, some commonalities can be identified, quantified and addressed, thus formalizing the process, improving the timeliness and reducing the project's risks.

This course provides a sound understanding of the concepts, processes and tools employed in all phases of a project including the initiation, planning, execution, monitoring, controlling, and closing of the project. Project management areas are examined and linked to industry practices and the Project Management Institute (PMI) international standards for successful management of projects. The goal is to gain a solid understanding of how to successfully manage each phase of the project lifecycle, work within organizational constraints, set goals that are directly linked to stakeholder needs, and utilize proven project management tools to complete projects on time and within budget while meeting the specifications. Essential concepts, processes, and techniques are applied through the use of several examples and hands on case studies.
