In the Essentials of Project Management course, people new to project management will learn the ten major steps in a project and then apply them to a project case study. You’ll start by negotiating with the sponsor and establishing the project scope in precise, measurable terms. Then you will move on to gather requirements from the stakeholders. Next you’ll prepare a Power Point presentation of the charter and send it to your instructor for feedback.
You will make a live online presentation to your instructor so you practice your communication and presentation skills. Then you’ll learn how to build the schedule and budget using project management software. This includes the work breakdown structure (WBS), predecessors, estimating resources and optimizing the schedule. You will send your instructor your work at each of those steps for review and comment. Next you will learn communication techniques and people skills to deal with conflict on the project team. Finally, your instructor will send you status data from your team. You’ll update your schedule and identify problems and suggest solutions. Finally, you’ll prepare a status report for presentation to your instructor. Mastering these proven techniques is the key to consistent success on every project.
Remember that your instructor is available to answer your questions and will always get back to you within 24 hours. So don’t struggle with a tool or technique. Ask your instructor a question and get your answer within 24 hours, 365 days a year.
