This introductory course provides students with practical knowledge of the methods and strategies that comprise modern project management theory. Students explore the five-stage model of project management: Initiation (creating a proposal), Planning (setting timelines, creating a budget, and communicating with stakeholders), Execution (identifying and addressing issues with regard to project range, budget, challenges, and risks), Monitoring (maintaining project quality through ongoing tasks), and Closing (completing the project and transferring deliverables).
This class is a great fit for students that want an overview or review of project management theories, methodologies, concepts, and approaches.
