Seminar Description

Topics: Project Management/Business Analysis

Sub-Topics: Leading Project Teams, Project Management, Risk Mitigation

If you're looking for a starting point to explore the rigors of becoming a Project Management Professional (PMP), this is the course for you. Learn what you need to know to complete your project on time, within budget and with satisfied customers inside and outside the organization. This intensive four-day course provides an in-depth review of project management standards, tools and techniques as presented in PMI's A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, 6th Edition.  Course instruction will be supplemented with case studies, team exercises, games and other activities to bring the standard to life and demonstrate core concepts through hands-on activities.  Participants will learn proven strategies for dealing with typical "real life" project threats such as scope creep, unrealistic schedule milestones, quality challenges, cost overruns, etc.
By the end of the course participants will have covered all of the project management process groups and knowledge areas presented in the PMBOK Guide.  They will also have a sound understanding of the difference between traditional, predictive project management and agile, change-driven project management.  They should also have hands-on experience creating some of the key project management artifacts such as a Project Charter, Scope Statement, Work Breakdown Structure, Communications Plan and Risk Register.
