State of the Art Project Management
Many people find themselves assigned projects with no formal training in Project Management. This program educates professionals in state-of-the-art Project Management practices. The course provides a modern, comprehensive and practical introduction to project management. It covers state of the art practices in both the managerial and technical aspects. The course combines theory and practice in the analysis of real-world projects from a wide variety of industries, including finance, construction, information systems, non-profit organizations, the government, and military.
Employing a skilled project manager increases the likelihood a project will be successful and profitable. Therefore, PM skills are valuable: provide vision and direction; control the scope of project deliverables; manage costs and schedules; identify and mitigate risks; manage subcontractors; and engage with stakeholders.
Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for leaders who manage complex projects but are not technical project managers. Those who work in cross-functional teams and manage multiple actions will profit from this high-quality program.
This program will be helpful for those involved in the planning and monitoring of projects for financial institutions and banks, government and coordinating agencies involved in project implementation.
Dr. Roger Warburton, Ph.D., PMP, is an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Administrative Sciences at Boston University’s Metropolitan College where he taught graduate courses in Project Management to non-traditional students, both online and in the classroom. Roger is also the author of the Project Management Textbook: The Art and Science of Project Management (2014). Roger’s research in Project Management produced new methods for cost and schedule estimation and tracking.
