Project management - essentials

Description

In this course, you will discover the features which identify a project, and be introduced to the various concepts and techniques you will need to use to effectively and successfully manage projects.

Unlike Process Management, Project Management is discrete in that the project has a limited lifetime.

Although many of the techniques you will need to apply are familiar, you will require other techniques which are, necessarily, quite different.

There are risks and uncertainties within the realm of project management which you may not have had to face before. This course will give you the insights necessary to address those uncertainties and minimise them.
