You are responsible for organizing and managing a multifaceted activity involving people from differing specialties to create something brand new. Quality is essential, resources are limited, and time is of the essence-a classic scenario. This course provides the practices, tools, and skills required to manage such an enterprise. The process starts with scoping the project, moves through identifying tasks and estimating resources, and concludes with setting schedules and completing a plan. Working individually and in groups, you will apply and extend your workplace expertise and integrate project management competencies. Tools acquired during this course will be applied in the next certificate course, Implementing Project Management.
