Organizations expect that projects will be within budget and on time. Successful project managers use a specific set of tools and techniques to reach these outcomes. This requires a balance of planning, organizing, communicating and managing. Work breakdown structures, Gantt charts, parametric analysis models and collaborative planning tools help project managers achieve success.
This certificate provides project managers with knowledge and skills for scheduling, estimating, identifying risks and executing projects successfully. Seminars include real world examples of task-based activities, including critical path scheduling, project overruns, lag times and resource leveling. The courses are useful in preparing for the Project Management Institute (PMI) certification as a Project Management Professional (PMP).
