A workplace project rarely depends on just one person. The projects we work on often involve stakeholders of all kinds: clients, co-workers, management, business partners, investors, and/or end users. Project success relies on the management of the project AND understanding the needs and roles of people involved. This course examines the foundational concepts of project management with an emphasis on communication best practices and people skills that will boost trust, morale, and commitment by the humans that make projects happen.

This Workshop is primarily asynchronous. There is a 1x Kick-Off meeting and optional 1-hour work sessions per week for 5 weeks. The course is completed at the end of Week 5 with the culmination of a group project viewing for certification.
