Project Management
Time: 12:30 – 5 pm
Cost: $199.00
Credit Hours: 4 CEU’s 
Includes Lunch and Cocktail Hour

Many companies are realizing that the traditional project management principles are no longer applicable in today’s extremely dynamic and demanding environment. A fixed approach of planning is no longer a good method since it is very difficult to anticipate everything in advance and respond to it in the plan. Instead, more agile planning methods are required to accommodate for changing markets, technology and resources over the course of a typical project.

As a result, new project managers must be systematically thought on best practices and established management techniques. In this course, participants will understand the role of project manager as a broker of information. The emphasis here is on the day-to-day running of a project as opposed to leading a team using emotional skills.

Participants will learn how to manage time, resources, cost, risk and quality.
