Your ability as project manager to demonstrate best practices in project management — both on the job and through professional certification — is becoming the standard to compete in today's fast-paced and highly technical workplace. In this course, you will apply the generally recognized practices of project management acknowledged by the Project Management Institute (PMI) ® to successfully manage projects.
The course, taught by a PMP-credentialed instructor, covers project initiation, creating high-performing teams, collaborating with and engaging stakeholders, how to determine appropriate project methods and practices, managing the schedule and scope of a project, evaluating business and environment changes, and how to mitigate risks within the project.
You'll learn time management skills and obtain an overview of the questions covered on the PMP Exam. The skills and knowledge you gain in this course will help you avoid making costly mistakes and increase your competitive edge in the project management profession.
