Introduction to Project Management


Employees with essential Project Management skills are currently in high demand -- research has shown that having these project management standards in place will significantly improve the probability of a project being successfully completed; however, when these protocols are absent, the probability of failure increases. As a result, companies now realize that project management plays a critical role in both the delivery of projects as well as the success of the overall organization. In this introductory overview of project management, students will explore a sample PM methodology; as well as, the industry standard concepts and body of knowledge to approach future projects with more knowledge and confidence.

After this class, you will be able to:

  • Describe the basic concepts, techniques, and knowledge areas of project management
  • Describe a sample project management methodology and how to apply it within an organization
  • Describe the key activities and tasks, which support this sample PM approach
  • Identify key tools and templates used in managing projects
