Project Initiation

Course Description

Have a project in mind for your organization? This course provides the information you need to get started on the right foot. Before any project work can begin, it’s important to do a bit of background research. Some critical elements to establish at the beginning of any project include creating a business case to justify the project for your organization, identifying your stakeholders and a plan to manage them, coming up with the project requirements that must be accounted for, and setting up a project team with the characteristics needed to support and complete this specific project.
