Introduction

In today’s world, where projects are growing in size and complexity at an exponential rate, the importance of mastering project management is now more crucial than ever before.

Managers often juggle multiple projects at the same time, dealing with multiple stakeholders, deadlines and priorities. If they can’t establish clear roadmaps for projects, it can lead to tremendous amounts of wasted time and budget dollars—not to mention very frustrated team members and clients.

Project managers should be familiar with the common project management methods and tools.

Today, the top project management techniques are the traditional waterfall, also known as predictive or linear project management; agile or adaptive; and hybrid, which combines the two. Common tools and techniques you can use within each method include work breakdown structure (WBS), Gantt charts, critical path method (CPM), Kanban and scrum.

In this interactive course, participants will learn all the critical tools and techniques required for the successful project execution and solve common project problems in a dynamic environment.
