Advanced Project Management Techniques - II
This online engineering PDH course provides a series of case studies of actual Project Managers and projects for which they were responsible. It is divided into three important categories: Leadership, Decision Making and Project Team.
In each category there are two different case studies, and in each case study the Project Managers utilized certain techniques, mostly orthodox but some unorthodox, in order to bring the projects to successful conclusions. Regardless of the paths that were chosen by the Project Managers, their implementation of the core principles of quality project management proved to be a huge asset. You will also recognize that, although these Project Managers may have had different levels of experience, they all went about their business in a confident and professional manner.
The last part of each of these above three categories tries to give an interesting account of people that we either know or have read about who faced similar challenges in the sports world. The projects that each of them managed was simply their livelihoods. Through diligence, wisdom, and an understanding of those around them, they were able to be successful in their life's projects.
The fourth and last section of this course relates to what actually took place following a major fire at a large manufacturing plant. In this case study, the Project Manager went beyond anything that he was obligated to do, resulting in a great savings to the plant, as well as significant future benefits to his engineering firm and to himself.
This 6 PDH online course is a continuing attempt to improve the prospects for existing project managers and would-be project managers to manage a successful project. Advanced Project Management - I (APM-I) is not a prerequisite for this course which is meant to be a sequel to APM-I, and is intended to broaden your knowledge about how successful projects are managed. Once you have completed this course, you will realize that there are no perfect projects, nor are you expected to be a perfect Project Manager.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
