Are you new to Project Management? Have you been given a project to manage, but have no idea where to start? We're here to help!

Project managers (PM) must use hard and soft skills to coordinate interactions among cross-functional team members and other stakeholders to:

  • Initiate a project
  • Define the project's scope and estimate other objectives (e.g., time, cost, resources, quality, risks)
  • Organize, prepare, and integrate the project's work, and track tasks and deliverables
  • Monitor and control project work, manage changes, and conduct lessons learned
  • Engage stakeholders, including organizational leadership
  • Close the project upon completion and acceptance of final deliverables

This interactive training presentation will provide you with an entry-level overview of the general project management process, grounded in the practices of the Project Management Institute® (PMI). It will also define the PM's role and responsibilities throughout the process, with practical tips along the way. Scenarios are presented for the audience to brainstorm ways to address real-world project challenges. Register today and start your PM journey!

*PMP and PMI are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
