Project Management: Integration Tools & Techniques

Description

Most project managers have to spend crucial time managing the day-to-day. It is a balancing act between your project’s cost, scope and schedule. One change will cascade across the project and impact many different areas. For example, a schedule slip will increase the project’s cost or a budget cut will decrease the project scope. Project integration attempts to unify all the project management processes and takes a holistic view of the overall project. Project integration is the “big picture” view and examines how all aspects of the project are interrelated.

  • Identify Project Basics
  • Explain How to Initiate a Project
  • Recognize and explain the Importance of Planning
