Project management is rapidly becoming one of the most valuable careers that crosses many industries. Get into the game by gaining an understanding of the project management field and how to be an effective project manager. You'll learn common project management terms, industry best practices, and how to correctly manage projects. Topics will be covered at a high-level, but attendees will walk away with a solid understanding of end-to-end project management steps/skills and methodologies. You'll also learn the differences between the agile vs. the waterfall methods, gain an understanding of programs, projects, and portfolios, and discuss project artifacts. You'll learn about the Project Management Institute's (PMI) industry certifications, the value of project management, roles and careers, and the nine knowledge areas as defined by PMI. You'll walk away with valuable templates that you can apply immediately to your work. To gain a comprehensive understanding, we encourage you to take the Fundamentals of Project Management II class and other required classes within the Project Management Fundamentals program.
