By gaining a thorough understanding of the process that underlies this discipline, you will be well-placed to plan and schedule your projects effectively, thereby increasing the chance of success.
As well as reviewing the classic skills involved in planning, scheduling and controlling projects, the msaterclass examines the different tools and methods available to deal effectively with risks to a successful project, and how to choose the most appropriate techniques.
Finally, because agile methods are becoming more common, the course will cover planning and scheduling for this type of project management, along with other useful skills in assurance and continuous improvement. All of this means that you should emerge from the course with a high degree of knowledge and a good set of tools and practices to apply in real-life project work.
