Filled with real world examples from Human Resources (HR) and Staffing projects, this course introduces the concept of Projects, Project Management, and the Tools and Techniques used to manage projects.

In this course, we learn the concept of what a Project is by discussing some of the criteria to determine when work would be considered a Project.  This leads to a discussion on the pros and cons of using formal project management methods to complete project work. We review the Project Management Institute's five project management process groups (Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, Closing).   Finally we examine some of the common project management tools and techniques you may encounter in your workplace. The Business case, the Project Charter (and its importance!), budget management tools, and more are discussed.  Examples used throughout the course focus on Human Resource (HR) and Staffing-related projects.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the difference between a “Project” and “Operations.”
  • Identify the Project Management Institute’s ™  five process of Project Management.
  • Identify the Triple Constraint model and its impact on project planning.
  • Discover some of the tools and techniques Project Managers use.

A lot of good information but hard to digest in one setting. However, I must admit the information has opened my eyes on how to better differentiate between a project and what should be considered operational in nature.

I didn't realize there was so much that goes into a project. I have a better understanding of the role that a Project Manager plays in the process. The course is presented in a way that makes it easy to comprehend.
