About Project Management Essentials

Date TBD

Are you tasked with managing projects but aren’t a formal project manager?
Do you run projects that are three months or less in duration and have a small project team? 
Project Management Essentials can help you run projects more efficiently and effectively, so you deliver on time with less stress!
In this highly interactive, three-hour, virtual course, you’ll learn the basics of running small projects well, using tools you’re already familiar with. This course focuses on the concept of just enough project management – you won’t have to learn complicated new processes or software to run projects better!

By the end of this program, you'll be able to:

  • Describe the characteristics of a small project
  • Create a plan for a small project, including a small project definition document, task list, and schedule
  • Manage and control the project, including monitoring project progress and managing project communication and key relationships
  • Closeout a small project​

Prework: To get the most out of this course, bring a project you’re working on or need to kick off. You’ll apply what you learn to your actual projects and be able to use what you learn immediately on the job. 
Don't hesitate
