Project Management: Principles for Success 

The backbone of project management is planning, scheduling, and controlling. There are well-established principles, tools, and techniques for taking these critical elements to a professional level of expertise. From the management of small to complex projects, participants will find a proven approach to shorten project duration, manage communication, report status, and keep the project on track for on time and on budget delivery.

Effective project managers use proven practices to manage the key resources of people, process, and knowledge. In this course, participants will be provided with the tools and skills needed to ensure that all of their projects are successful. They will learn how to manage a project from the beginning to end and will have the chance to put into practice their newly acquired skills. They will work on actual projects, learn to develop a team, outline project scope, and project outcomes.
