Project Fundamentals for the Accidental Project Manager

Business and Project Management Professionals | PMP

About This Course

If you are amazing at your job and suddenly find yourself promoted and in charge of a project team, then you are considered an “accidental project manager”. Once in the position you’ll need to have the tools and techniques necessary to enter into the new role successfully. This skills-based project management course covers the fundamental knowledge that all project managers must have to successfully initiate, plan, execute, monitor and control the competing constraints of any project: cost, time, quality, scope, and resources.

It is designed to give newer project managers an edge with tools and techniques they will apply throughout the life-cycle of their projects, along with best practices for managing a successful project. Aligned with the PMBOK® Guide, 5th Edition, this course provides a refresh and review of the skills and vernacular that will benefit intentional project managers and PMP®-certified professionals as well.

This course will provide 8 Professional Development Units (PDU’s) that can be used toward PMP® certification or applied to the Technical Skills continuing education requirement of PMI® Talent Triangle.
