9:00 AM - 5:30 PM

2655 Camino Del Rio North Ste.(Room 370B)
San Diego, CA 92108

This 40-hour course offers a comprehensive study of project management concepts, definitions and methodologies with strong emphasis on Inputs, Tools & Techniques and Outputs. This course is certification-focused with guidance for a post-training study plan and a certification exam strategy.

ABSTRACT: As the primary vehicle for the creation of business value and change, projects have become significantly important to organizations hoping to compete, profit and grow in the business space. The harsh realities of organizational structure, culture, and politics, however, create obstacles that can, and regularly do, conflict with the objectives and success of a project. Project Management provides the framework, methodologies and tools necessary to mitigate these influences through the application of integration, planning, communication, team building, change management, risk management, and other necessary activities throughout the project life-cycle. Project Management is central to the successful completion of projects and the strategic advantages that result.
