About this course

Organizations are turning to project management to help them plan and control their businesses. As a result, Project Management is recognized as one of the fastest growing professions today. Project Management Fundamentals provides the basics for project managers by introducing essential project management concepts and methods. Through discussion, workshops and real-world examples, participants learn how to identify project components, organize them effectively, and control the project from the earliest steps of developing the project charter through the final steps of a project – documenting lessons learned.

  • This course is five intense days that will prepare the student to take the PMP examination through practice exams, workshops, and class discussion.
    • Identify common phases in the project life cycle (initiating, planning, executing, and closing) and list activities critical to each
    • Analyze new project constraints (time, resources, performance) and identify trade-offs between them (for example, if timely project completion date is critical, a company may expend more resources and perhaps reduce quality expectations if a deadline is at risk)
    • Identify project stakeholders and their needs and prioritize stakeholders’ impacts to the project by the following criteria: proximity to the project, power, and urgency (time sensitivity)
    • Create a project work breakdown structure that accurately reflects a given project’s scope and includes individual work packages, each scaled for a single owner
    • Employ a work breakdown structure to develop a network diagram that accurately reflects duration and sequencing of project activities identify a project’s critical path and compute a project’s earliest possible finish date by means of the two-pass method
    • Name the four methods for responding to project risks (avoid, transfer, mitigate, and accept) and the three methods for responding to project opportunities (exploit, share, and enhance) and identify their differences
    • Summarize the differences between analogous, parametric, and bottom-up cost estimating and describe when it’s appropriate to use each
    • Define “planned value”, “earned value”, “actual costs”, “schedule variance”, and “cost variance” within the context of Earned Value Management; demonstrate how this system may be used to manage project cost and schedule.
