Advanced Project Management Techniques - I
In this online engineering PDH course, you will learn that in almost all projects the Project Manager (PM) and project team members will develop and utilize some core principles. One of those core principles is that the burden of assuring the finite factors in addition to the end result is primarily the responsibility of the PM. The Project Manager not only needs to know what to do, but also “how to do it” and what to do when a difficult situation presents itself.
The course is divided into two separate parts, each of which is intended to improve the capabilities of a Project Manager or a potential Project Manager. The first part describes the steps necessary to become a top quality PM, and focuses on the background and education necessary to be considered for a project management role. Other topics in this first part concentrate on developing characteristics of leadership as well as motivational skills that will improve the PM’s efforts to ensure that your project team will work closely with you so that the project’s goals will be met.
The second part of this course deals with the actual fundamentals of managing a project so that a Project Manager and every team member are performing at an optimum level. This portion of the course covers the multiple functions of the project, including the activities necessary to assure that engineering, equipment and construction meet the quality objectives of the project. It also describes techniques to obtain optimum scope and design parameters as well as how to maintain schedule and cost controls. Examples are given of solutions to problems that are encountered as the project unfolds.
