Practical Project Management
August 24, 8:00 am - August 26, 5:00 pm| $700
This course will be taught live-virtual and is designed for project managers that want to develop or improve their project management methodology. This course is based on generally accepted project management practices and procedures. It is also based on a practical application flow of the ten knowledge areas, five process groups, and forty-nine processes that make up the framework of the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge – Sixth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc. 2017 (PMBOK® Guide). The practical application of each process and project management terminology are covered in this course. Example project management subsidiary plans and working documents are provided and discussed throughout the course. The first two days are dedicated to developing a firm understanding of what is required for projects to be successful and to enable the repeatability of successful project management.
The third day of the course is a workshop where a case study is analyzed, and the project management plan is written up. Earned value and project network diagramming exercises will also be completed.
Takeaways from this course include:
- Knowledge and understanding of PMI terminology
- Knowledge and understanding of the PMBOK® Guide processes and structure
- Application of general project management techniques
- Understanding of hybrid project management (Integration of Predicative and Agile project management approach)
- Understanding of how to measure project performance, actual results to planned results
- Example project management plans which provide guides for methodology development
- Example project management documents which can be adapted to the methodology
The overall purpose of this course is to provide foundational terminology and to provide information required to develop or improve the project management methodology.
This course is not a preparation course for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) or the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) exams, instead it offers the practical application in project management. To prepare for the PMP® or CAPM® exam, PSIPM offers the Advanced Project Management Course.
