PM Essentials, PM Strategy Making Projects Work (Intermediate)
06/22/2017 to 06/23/2017

PMGT 11102 | Making Projects Work (Intermediate)

The practice of project management is influenced as much by collective wisdom, lessons learned, and the school of hard knocks as it is by its foundation of framework, principles, processes, and techniques. In this course, we will explore the art of recognizing and managing these other shaping influences in order to determine the project management approach best suited to a particular project or portfolio of projects. These influences include stakeholder expectations, customer relationships, resource contention, organizational design and culture, political environment, communication and leadership styles, risks, and market forces.

This course is highly interactive. The overarching objective of this course is to provide you with tactical and strategic insights for tackling real-world project management issues and challenges so you can produce superior project results. Using a combination of case studies and shared real-world experiences, this course will equip project practitioners with an “operational map” for navigating projects toward successful outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the components of a project management system and a project management office (PMO), and the relationships between the organizations in a variety of organizational structures.
  • Define the components of the project life cycle and show why they can vary based on the type of project; starting with expectations, and continuing through a work breakdown structure, the calculation of time, and development of a risk management plan. Learn to calculate the variance of the parallel and critical paths.
  • Describe the role of risk as it relates to the project life cycle and the overall success of the project.
  • Establish a link between soft skills and project risks, through use of the interpersonal models.
  • Understand the Project Management Institute, its impact on the growth of the discipline of PM, and the significance of the PMBOK® process-knowledge area framework.

Course delivery format: This is an onsite course.

Sections: This course is offered three times per year.  It is also offered on 10/6/16 and 2/23/17.

Notes:

Breakfast, networking lunch, and all materials included in tuition.
