"By the time a man asks you for advice, he has generally made up his mind what he wants to do, and is looking for confirmation rather than counseling."

PROJECT MANAGEMENT: A FRAMEWORK FOR TODAY’S ENVIRONMENT
 
 
Project Management is:
  • The Marshalling of Resources – including one or more individuals
  • To produce a specified set of Results
  • Within a definite Time-Span.

To be successful, today’s Project Manager/Leader must be able to:

  • Lead People
  • Manage Resources
  • Manage the Process
  • Manage the Product
  • Handle the Problems
This course presents a framework for accomplishing these tasks. By defining the various aspects of Project Management students are able to effectively focus on their specific problems/needs and difficulties within their organization.
In addition, for many Project Managers who have “learned on the job”, this framework allows them to organize their skills and experiences so they can leverage them where appropriate.
