Project Management Fundamentals

About

Practice using the tools and techniques of formal project management.

A well-planned, well-managed project provides clarity, reduces risk, controls cost, and delivers value to the business. In this course, you will learn the fundamentals and best practices of project management through hands-on, real-world exercises. Ensure that you are delivering business value by assessing a project’s business case, identifying stakeholders and their relationship to your project, capturing product requirements, and establishing quality metrics to guide the development of your product and reassess the business case.

Define product scope to provide clarity for project delivery and create a work breakdown structure to define project scope for the team. Manage your project within the planned budget and schedule by managing change and identifying and managing risks, assumptions, and constraints. Track the delivery of business value and close projects out cleanly.

By the end of this course, you should have gained a good understanding and experience of the core competencies that make a successful project manager.
