Leading technical projects, particularly in a large enterprise such as the DoD, requires technical knowledge and effective project management techniques.
This five-day, hands-on, project-based class is taught by a University of Arizona staff instructor, an experienced project manager who knows the DoD environment.
In addition to covering the concepts of project management, the course covers common issues, lessons learned, and other actionable and practicable tips for success. Agile project management and methods such as "crashing the project" are also discussed.
In this 40-contact-hour course, participants will
- Learn techniques for the life cycle of a typical project, including initiating, planning, executing and closing
- Develop an effective understanding of essential project management principles and how to apply these principles in the day-to-day technical and enterprise environment
- Demonstrate methods for solving and avoiding common difficulties associated with project management
