Introduction & Background

“Helped me understand how to better apply project management tools and techniques in my own group.” - Quentin Hauta, Cameco

Learn how to plan and execute organizational projects on time and on budget.

A project is any unique undertaking which requires a special organization and has stated objectives in terms of scope, time and cost. The Project Management Course takes a comprehensive view of "the total project," from the planning and organizational stages to the actual implementation stage with special emphasis placed on control and continuous improvement.

Course coverage will include project management systems and will also explore the often neglected human side of Project Management and employee motivation. This is an ideal overview for anyone directly or indirectly involved in project development.
