Course 2 of 2 in the “Project Management Mastering Projects” series. Part 1 is: “Mastering Projects: Real World Agile in Practice”.
In this course, participants will build upon the fundamentals covered in the “Mastering Projects” courses by applying knowledge, tools and techniques to scenarios and case studies. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in experiential learning exercises both individually and in teams and explore specific topics in greater detail, including: interpersonal skills, identifying opportunities and threats, requirements gathering, critical path and critical chain methods, project performance management, and procurement/contracting.
This course is aligned with the PMI®, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), the leading project management standard worldwide today. This course is intended to engage participants and inspire them to develop a pragmatic approach for managing projects by combining their experience (both classroom and career) and knowledge with industry standards and good practice. Students are encouraged to continue building a project management “toolbox” by adding additional components acquired from the course as well as through discoveries made in class from other students, through work experiences, via in-class experiential activities and through research.
Advanced topics and specific project management tools, techniques and methods are introduced in this course, and additional time is spent exploring the 10 knowledge areas and five process groups outlined in the PMBOK® Guide.
