By popular demand, PM College opened registration for a public edition of its most popular class: Project Management Essentials. PM Essentials lays the foundation of what every project manager needs to know in order to successfully manage projects. Participants gain an understanding of how the project management processes are used during each phase of a project to deliver a better, more effective project. These sessions are delivered virtually, which combines the insight of our experienced instructors with the convenience of not having to leave one’s desk.
Handling several projects at once means more than dealing with just multiple schedules; it involves multiple risks, multiple stakeholders, and multiple functional managers who allocate resources. The key to managing multiple projects expertly is to recognize priorities and delegate wisely – not an easy feat in today’s complex environment. To do that successfully, you need to understand what makes up your workload, as well as an understanding of how risk, human resources, and schedules must be integrated.
This course is for anyone preparing to sit for the Project Management Institute, Inc. (PMI)® Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam. PMP Exam Review will cover each of the ten knowledge areas, plus the Professional Responsibility process area, and the five process groups covered in the PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition. Through lectures, practice exams, and practical exercises, participants will focus on key concepts, terms, and principles necessary for successfully passing the PMP exam. In addition, participants will become familiar with the format and makeup of the exam.
Strategies for Effective Project Stakeholder Engagement: Actively Managing Up and Out of the Project Team
Aligning project goals with business goals is the focus of every project manager but getting your stakeholders all aligned is often like steering an ocean liner. Taking time to actually develop a strategy for effective stakeholder engagement for your project, is something that typically falls to the very last thing to do, if it ever gets done. Project management is very output driven, but this class will help you recognize that it is the project manager that needs to be OUTCOME focused for the benefit of both the project and the business.
