Project Management I



The course includes a combination of lectures, demonstrations, and group work using real-life case examples. Class size is limited to ensure a high level of interactivity.

The workshop is designed to provide participants with:

  • A generic “5-step” framework for managing projects that is consistent with the worldwide “Project Management Institute Book of Knowledge”, and can be applied to any project;
  • The ability to “read” project environments, detect and diagnose barriers and roadblocks, and prepare strategies for moving their projects forward;
  • The skills and methods to apply at their workplaces immediately.
  • A broad context of the subject and potential avenues for continued learning.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Position projects and deadlines within a common “5-step” framework;
  • Quickly map out an action plan for moving a project forward, or getting a project back on track;
  • Use and adapt key templates and processes supporting the 5-step framework;
  • Understand the role and challenges of the “project manager” function; and
  • Understand how a project management tool (ex: Microsoft Project) may help him/her fulfill this role.
