A required course in the Certificate Program in Project Management.
Managing multiple projects presents different and additional challenges when compared with the management of a single project. This advanced hands-on course builds on the project managers’ previously acquired knowledge and skills in the areas of scope, time, cost, risk, human resources, leadership, and teambuilding through a combination of videos, discussions, and team-based learning exercises.
This capstone course lets you put into practice the project process groups and knowledge areas that are outlined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide (PMBOK® Guide) and expands it to those required to management multiple projects.
These skills include delivering appropriate and timely communications and advanced effectively management skills to oversee: multiple stakeholders; task prioritization; and efficient resource allocation.

The basics of Portfolio Management, Program Management, and Scrum of Scrum Agile project management techniques are also covered.
