Course Overview

Designed to complement Part 1 of our Project Management Key Skills Series, Part 2 provides students with the key skills needed to plan projects. These skills are critical for Project Manager Professionals to overcome the typical challenges involved with performing many day-to-day tasks identified in PMI's new Project Management Professional Role Delineation Study (RDS) and Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). Course concepts, which range from project costs, to time and risks, to communication, stakeholder and procurement management, are explained in detail to ensure that students develop the real world exposure required to manage project planning effectively.

Course Description

Course activities provide students with expert guidance on each of the 12 tasks involved with planning projects, paving the way to professional self-discovery and development. By watching narrated presentations, answering best practice surveys and studying mini-case challenges, students are able to apply project management knowledge and develop confidence in their newly learned skills. Utilizing information from PMI's most recent Role Delineation Study (RDS), the course topics cover the RDS's 12 planning process tasks.
