Participants will learn the fundamental skills of project management. Using these new skills, the participants will practice them on an assigned project and one of their own choosing.
Participants will complete an entire project plan and be able to explain that plan to others and support their reasoning for that plan. We will use Excel, Smartsheet, and Lucent for our exercises.
The class will NOT include how to use commercially available Project tools such as Microsoft Project.
The class will be built around modules. Completing all the modules and the assigned work will result in a Certificate of Achievement from Aims.
A module will include a brief topic presentation, Q&A, and then practical hands-on work. This work will be done during the on-line time and the results shared with the class for comment and suggestions. A module is scheduled to be from 90 minutes to 2-hours.
The class can be completed either through attendance of the on-line sessions or viewing the class recording and submitting the completed class assignments for grading. Assignments that do not receive a passing grade can be corrected and resubmitted.
