Both the private and public sectors are becoming involved in an ever-increasing array of organizational improvement programs, high technology implementations, and new program implementations. Many otherwise competent managers are being forced to react to these changes through “crisis management”, resulting in far too much effort and resources being spent on otherwise controllable initiatives. This learning event teaches individuals the basic principals of project management based on the guidelines set by the Project Management Institute.

During this three-day workshop you will learn to effectively manage both simple and complex projects ranging from those requiring little time and resources, to those spanning many years. You will learn project management skills, concepts, and principles through a number of dynamic lectures, interactive class discussions, and practical hands-on activity-based learning exercises using a case study.

Participants who successfully complete a short open-book test on day three of the workshop will be able to claim 17 PDUs towards their PMP® Certification with the PMI.
