You will learn how to assess a project with respect to time, costs, and resources in order to effectively and efficiently reach your goals. You will become familiar with the five processes involved in Project management - Initiating, Planning, Executing, Controlling, and Closing on time and within budget -- Project Integration, Project Scope, Project Time, Project Cost, Project Quality, Project Human Resources, Project Communications, Project Risk Management, and Project Procurement - that are essential to being an expert Project Manager. This series of courses follows for the most part the framework within the Project Management Institute's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).
