This course provides an introduction to the concepts, techniques, and principles of project management. Primary emphasis will be on learning the project management process outlined in the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK Guide (Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide). Agile, extreme, and other variations of project management will be discussed and their key features related to the PMBOK Guide.

A special section focused on managing strategic foresight projects will use case studies and the methods available on the Shaping Tomorrow website for hands-on practice.

Upon completion of the course students will be able to plan, schedule, budget, estimate, control, and monitor projects. In addition, they will become familiar with resource allocation, resource loading and the creation and use of GANTT and PERT charts.

This course is free.

Purchase of the PMBOK Guide for use as a text is optional. For those wanting to use this course to support new or continuing certification by the Project Management Institute (PMI), purchasing the text is recommended.

A certificate and supporting documentation is available for a fee upon completion of this course from Shaping Tomorrow. This certificate can be used to meet professional development requirements for the PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
