About the course
As the PMBOK® Guide states, a project is a temporary endeavor intended to produce a unique result. In other words, no two projects are the same and, while the PMBOK® Guide sets clear processes, project success is often dependent on project leadership and the ability to adapt practices to the project context.
This course is the capstone course of the Certificate in Project Management program and is intended to reinforce the processes and practices needed to complete projects on time, on budget, and to the customer’s satisfaction. Through in-depth examination of recent case studies of projects that have either succeeded or failed in both mature and immature organizations, students learn the key factors for managing successful projects and identify the challenges with rigorous project management.
Upon completion of the course, a successful student will be able to:
- Understand how processes, practices, and people are all integral to managing projects
- Apply basic concepts of project management to a variety of applications / situations
- Identify characteristics of effective project management
- Discuss the role of the customer in managing projects
