Description

This past year has shown us the need for numerous projects and the need to manage those projects in a unique way. Project management is a way of thinking highly recognized and practiced by large organizations, but often neglected by the smallest companies and entrepreneurs. This course quickly discusses the basics of project management thought and practice and then spends the majority of the time exploring some of the greatest mistakes that can be made, the ways to avoid them, and some of the tricks that have been introduced into the discipline. In the program we will explore some of the specific types of project management as well as some of the available software programs to make the task of project management easier. In an effort to avoid talking theory without concrete examples, we will often use examples born from projects needed as a result of our experiences with COVID-19.

Highlights

  • Contrasting project management with operations management
  • Reviewing organizational culture and how it applies to project management
  • The various types of project management including Agile, Scrum, Waterfall, Critical path, and others
  • Looking at risk management software and its application in different types of project management
  • Managing and leading project management stakeholders
