Essentials of Project Management, e-learning Edition

How to Lead Your Team and Deliver Your Projects | taught by Andy Kaufman, PMP

Course description

Delivering projects on time, on budget, with desired scope is no small order. Statistically speaking, the odds are not in your favor. The margin for error with projects has all but shrunk in most organizations. We just cannot tolerate projects that don't deliver.

So, how do we successfully deliver more consistently, in the real world where there are no 5 Easy Steps to Successfully Delivering Projects? Our Essentials of Project Management workshop is a very practical way to get your organization on track to consistently delivering successful projects. And now, this proven workshop is available in an e-learning format.

Who is this Course Designed For?

Project managers, project leads, business analysts, team leaders, project team members, and stakeholders. We've had salespeople, administrative assistants, engineers, and more take this workshop and learn how to deliver. This course can be an important part of your preparation for Project Management Professional (PMP)® or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification. Or, if you're already certified, this course allows you to earn PDUs to maintain your certification.

Bottom-line: If you need to deliver projects, this workshop is for you.
