Advanced Project Management

Course overview – Online Advanced Project Management

Aligned to the Project Management Institute – the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)

Projects are everywhere, they affect us whether we know it or not. Some organisations do it well, others do not, and this can cost you quality, time, cash, and customer satisfaction.

In this course you will be taken through the knowledge areas of Project Management to deliver on the customer’s expectation. This is the ‘Project Management Body of Knowledge’ or PMBOK. These knowledge areas are a step-by-step process that you can take and use in any organisation – while the environment may change the process remains the same, and that is why it is so powerful.

You will learn the role of a Project Manager and a Project Management Office (PMO). You will learn how projects get things done and that the methodology is more than just a set of tools and documentation. You will understand how a Project Manager and PMO fits in an organisation and the qualities and skills of a project leader.

The course will take you through a real scenario in the workplace to see how the PMBOK sets your project up for success. Through engaging videos and slide packs, you will get an understanding of the PMBOK and Project Management.

This course is a great compliment to our ‘Agile’ and the ‘Lean Six Sigma’ Belt packages.
