About the course

Whether you are launching a new product or organizing a major mission, a strong grasp of project management skills can ensure that project targets are met on time and under budget. Successful companies such as HP and IBM have long considered project management courses essential for their engineers and managers. Many top CEOs understand that implementing the best practices of project management can help reduce costs, increase productivity, and boost corporate competitiveness. In this interactive course, students will be introduced to important concepts—such as work breakdown structure and the critical path method—and then led through the hands-on planning and execution of a team project in class. Other essential areas such as cost, quality, human resources, communication, and risk management will also be addressed. Classroom lectures will be supplemented with film clips, instructional videos, and a special guest lecture. Students, project engineers, managers, and business owners will benefit from gaining a firm understanding of this essential management skill.
