The success of any project is highly dependent on the person who is leading it. As a project manager, you must manage the scope, quality, time, cost, risk, communications, team members, and stakeholders throughout the inevitable highs and lows. To say it's a demanding job, might be an understatement.
For that reason, many project managers, particularly those who are new to the job, choose Project Management Essentials. In this program, you will be lead through The Project Management Institute’s Project Management Framework, Processes, and Knowledge Areas. Your facilitator, who has trained thousands of participants from the private and public sectors, will be keenly focused on making the experience practical and engaging so the tools and techniques taught are immediately applicable to any projects you may lead.
Project Management Essentials is aligned with the Project Management Institute's (PMI®) standards and you will receive PMI® Professional Development Units (PDUs).
