Overview

The goal with this course is to help participants gain knowledge and techniques that make leading and participating in projects more successful throughout a whole project. When we look at just the project and not the people, even the most carefully planned project can fall apart in a blink. We will examine the basic foundational concepts of project management with an emphasis on leadership, communication, best practices and people skills that will boost trust, morale, and commitment by the humans that make projects happen....successfully.
