This course describes practical project management skills needed to successfully lead modern, multi-disciplinary, international projects. A description of the project management cycle is linked to the project lifecycle. Tools that help propel the project management cycle are described and demonstrated, including tools and techniques for managing project complexity, managing virtual and geographically fragmented project teams, tailoring the project scope to satisfy organizational costs and schedule constraints, identifying and proactively resolving potential success conflicts, and providing clarity to a project team. Also, practical methods and tools are presented that develop a prescription for project management development that is optimized for the organization’s culture and business environment.
