Project Launch

A required course in the Certificate Program in Project Management.

Course Description

Learn how to justify and select projects and how stakeholders influence projects. Develop requirements necessary to define project scope and create a list of tasks necessary to accomplish the scope. Create effective communication plans and assign responsibilities. Today’s fast track business and global environment places emphasis on how to increase project production efficiency with limited available resources. Gain an understanding of fundamentals of project planning with the use of scheduling software. Establish project requirements, objectives and goals before defining the total project scope with the use of a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). A project plan then can formally be created with the use of project software. This course uses a simulation project—a Project Plan for student to develop together with the lecturer in the classroom as the basis in part for determining both final grade and mastery of key project management practices.

Students will be required to complete assignments in Canvas prior to the first meeting. The course site will be available 7 days prior to the first face to face meeting. Instructions for logging in will be provided in enrollment confirmation.
