Introduction to Project Management
Our Introduction to Project Management training class introduces formal strategies and skills that are essential to managing projects effectively.
Learn to Plan and Execute Projects
Though planning is an important part of Project Management, it alone cannot guarantee a satisfactory conclusion. Project Managers must adapt to the inevitable challenges and changes that could derail their projects.
Our Intro to Project Management training class teaches skills in both designing and executing projects, including:
- Controlling risks
- Managing scope creep
- Staying within budget
- Completing projects on time.
Who should attend?
This class is suitable for anyone who needs to have more successful project outcomes. This includes individuals from every department in a company, not just the Project Management Office. Many attendees will not have the title “Project Manager”.
The class is also appropriate for both experienced project managers who have never been exposed to formal approaches and new project managers who want to start their careers in the right direction.
We limit our Intro to Project Management class sizes to 12 participants to ensure that the time our clients invest in training is well spent.
Small classes mean more individual attention, more applicable training, and a better experience.
Prior project management experience is not required for this class.
