For IT Professionals:
This course provides a comprehensive introduction to project management as applied to information technology projects. It covers basic concepts such as project scope, planning, execution, and closure. Participants will develop project plans, track progress, manage ambiguity and risks, and make changes to the plan - working individually as well as part of a team. "Real world" examples of project issues viewed from a professional's standpoint will enable them to apply many of these principles on the job.
