Project Management Practical Applications (Two-day Workshop) (BPM103-SU)
|Summer 2017||Fall 2017||Spring 2018|
Project management has become a business-critical practice for Asia-Pacific organizations today. If you would like to see why and to start to develop a practice that suits our time and place, then this course is for you. We will follow a mini-case study involving two Asia-Pacific firms that have contracted on a project critical to both their futures. We will look at the sequence of growing challenges faced by the project manager as things begin to go wrong by using a framework of key jobs for project definition, planning, and implementation. You'll work with colleagues to understand how well these jobs were done in the case, and to see how doing them better might help - in the case and in your own project. Participants who complete the course should be better able to collaborate and to deliver more successful projects for their organizations. This weekend course (1.2 CEUs, 2 days, 6 hours each day) can serve busy people as an intensive or refresher course in project management. It is also a convenient way to complete a portion of the educational requirement for obtaining or maintaining PMI certification as a Professional Project Manager (PMP).
Students participating in this workshop must read the case study materials and answer the study guide questions before class. Due to license agreements, we cannot distribute the case study materials via e-mail. In order for us to mail the materials in a timely manner, please apply as early as possible.
