Course Detail: P_EFFPM - Effective Project Management

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 concepts, practices, and skills required to manage such an enterprise. The process starts with examining the situation and organizing the team; moves through identifying tasks and estimating resources; and concludes with setting schedules, managing risk, and completing a plan. Working in teams, you will apply and extend your workplace expertise and integrate project management competencies.

You will learn about:

  • Situation analysis and problem solving
  • The essentials of project team leadership
  • Work breakdown structure and work package specifications
  • The planning and control cycle
  • Estimation and priority setting
  • Precedent diagramming and scheduling
  • Risk management and contingency planning
  • The Gantt chart, resource leveling, and final planning
