Project Management Fundamentals
The Project Management Institute defines a project as “a temporary group activity designed to produce a unique product, service, or result.” Can you think of some projects that you have been involved in? What made them successful (or not)?
Project management isn’t just for construction engineers and military logistics experts anymore. Today, in addition to the regular duties of your job, you are often expected to take on extra assignments, and to get that additional job done well, done under budget, and done on time.
This course is not intended to take you from a supervisory or administrative position to that of a project manager. However, these topics will familiarize you with the most common terms and practices in terms of working on projects.
After you complete this course, you will be able to:
- Describe what is meant by a project.
- Explain what project management means.
- Identify benefits of projects.
- Identify the phases of a project’s life cycle.
- Sell ideas and make presentations related to pitching a project.
- Prioritize projects.
- Begin conceptualizing your project, including goals and vision statements.
- Use project planning tools.
- Contribute to creating a Statement of Work.
