Project Management Applications

Core Project Management Courses

You will learn to:

  • Build a cohesive and productive project team and deal with the practical and emotional issues involved with team building
  • Develop a comprehensive project management plan
  • Control a project in a resource-constrained environment while juggling competing project constraints of time, cost, resources, risk and quality
  • Transfer lessons learned back to the real job

Course Synopsis

Watch basic concepts come to life in this course, a comprehensive synthesis of core project management principles designed to reinforce skills learned throughout the core curriculum. Build on your new competencies and test your skills as you work in teams to complete an extensive, realistic, project case study. You’ll propose, plan and execute a full-scale project under typical organisational constraints. Follow your project through the life cycle, resolving issues of performance, scheduling and control as you address questions of leadership and management. Each team member will take a turn as project manager, defining objectives and performing tasks and producing deliverables critical to the project’s success. Confirm your mastery of the core principles of project management in this experiential course and gain the hands-on confidence to practice new skills in your organisation.

Reminder: This practice-based course integrates the knowledge, skills and competencies that are gained in the other Strategy Execution core project management courses. Having a foundation in industry standard project management practices is a vital component to your success in this course. Typically, this can be achieved by completing at least four Strategy Execution project management courses.

Recommendation: Please bring a calculator to class. You may also find a laptop computer useful during this class.
