Project Management Fundamentals
Project management opportunities are around us all the time and in all market sectors. On the surface, they may not seem like projects but if you look at what makes up the definition of a project you will see that there are always a lot of projects going on at the same time. Complex assignments require a clear objective, good communication, thoughtful planning, and responsible leadership. This online training offers tactics to manage resources and time effectively, keep the budget under control, and provides methods for troubleshooting to solve common problems. A weekly half-hour conference call is included.
