About the Course
This course will introduce you the learner to project management theories and principles. Specifically, you will be introduced to the characteristics of a project, learn to distinguish between projects and operations, and define progressive elaboration. This course will help you to be able to immediately start setting priorities, control budgets and report on the results. In the course, we will show you practical ways to explore and understand your goals from the outset of
your project, and to consider all the factors that may affect its execution. Step by step you will learn how to plan, scope, schedule, cost and manage your project from beginning to end. Since every project relies on the people who are delivering it, the course also enables you to explore how you can effectively communicate, manage people and employ leadership skills to successfully deliver your own project.
