Focused on a practitioner’s rather than academic view of Project Management with lots of hands-on exercises, case studies and fun historical examples as well as tricks, tips and “Guerrilla” tactics. Particular focus on soft skills to enable effective stakeholder communication. Completion of this course earns you 7.5 PDUs that may be applied to PMP certification/re-certification requirements. If you have any questions contact the instructor directly.

You may need this course if:

  • Projects experience budget, scope and time overruns
  • Unexpected issues and problems arise in the middle of projects
  • There always seems to be way more work than resources available
  • Your employees are working long hours and on weekends
  • Quality of the project product is low 
  • Communications seem to be ad-hoc; too often important stakeholders are not informed about key decisions
  • Project’s requirements are never clearly defined
  • Scope increases, but the schedule slips because no additional resources are provided
  • Specifications are satisfied, but the customers are not
  • You seem to be spending more time fixing issues from previous releases rather than working on “new” products…
