Course Description

Most of us are ”accidental project managers”; in other words, we do not choose to become project managers, we are chosen to become project managers. Yet even those with no formal background in project management, can successfully manage projects based on a foundational understanding of how project management principles are applied in real-world settings. This 2-day workshop covers the basic set of tools needed to become a successful and competent project manager from day one.  Through the use of case studies, the workshop covers all phases of project management: Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitor and Control, and Closure, with a particular emphasis on risk management and stakeholder management.

This course can count toward the education requirements for PMI certification (PMP or CAPM) or serve as a refresher course for the Continuing Certification Requirement exam.
