Is there a lot to managing a project well? Absolutely!
But you do not have to learn all of it at once, and you don’t necessarily need to be a credentialed Project Manager before you start making a BIG difference with a few simple concepts. Our Project Management Essentials course is a live virtual, instructor-led, hands-on, exercise-based workshop that focuses on exactly that – the ESSENTIALS to get you started in planning and managing your first project(s).
In this course, you will learn the following concepts, tools, and techniques, that can be applied to your projects:
- Introduction to Project Management
- Project Scope and Activities
- Project Schedule
- Quality Assurance and Control
- Resources, and Risk Management
- Project Procurement
- Project Metrics and Performance
- Intro to Agile approaches

The course will also touch on some finer points of Project Management, according to Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMI’s PMBOK). But the focus will be on practical techniques that will be immediately applied to REAL projects! So, if you have been recently appointed, anointed, or “voluntold” that you are leading a project, this course will equip you to get started. Let’s Go!
