Description

Begin your projects with a focus on success.

Outline

Many problems that arise in the course of a project can be solved by proper project planning ahead of time. 

This course will teach you the dynamics of project initiation so that every project you start will be set up to succeed. You’ll learn how to communicate with stakeholders, analyze the organization, develop a budget, and identify roles and responsibilities during the critical planning stages of your projects. You will learn how to be proactive, align your projects with corporate goals, and influence others to assist you in completing your projects.

Course Outcomes

At the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • define the organizational context for project managers.
  • identify how your project fits into the organization’s strategy and how projects are selected and prioritized.
  • describe the project manager’s role in developing an effective project charter.
  • analyze the role of external documents, such as the business case and project statement of work (SOW).
  • learn how to identify stakeholders and their requirements and devise strategies for engaging them.
