As a project manager, you're responsible for delivering a successful project. To be a successful project manager, your results are measured on more than time, cost and budget requirements. You must also be an effective communicator and know how to assess risks at all stages of a project's lifecycle.
Enhance your experience as a project manager through this self-paced course. Learn strategies to address common challenges that can affect the success of a project, such as:
- monitoring and controlling a project
- identifying the most effective tools and techniques
- procurement and supply chain planning
- communicating with stakeholders
- assessing and managing risk
Using a mix of case studies and practical tasks, you'll learn how to define success measures at the start of a project, and use tracking tools and techniques to identify issues early. You'll also learn how to reduce the likelihood of delays by selecting tools and methods that best suit your project and guide it to successful completion.
By the end of this course, you'll be better equipped to manage all aspects of your project's performance. Your enhanced project management mindset will support greater quality across the lifecycle of your projects.
