This 3-day fundamental course is an accessible, hands-on journey through a project from initiation to closing, with a special emphasis on initiation and planning. Course participants work in project teams to practice PM tools while they experience the realistic challenges that are encountered on projects. Although it is possible to customize a case study for a specific industry or organization, this course offers 2 case studies so there is something for everyone.

Real-life stories from a variety of industries are used to illustrate key concepts and best practices and the instructor encourages course participants to share their experiences. This ensures the discussions are realistic and relevant.

Project Management Essentials is compliant with the Project Management Body of Knowledge and it introduces tools and terminology without overwhelming participants with jargon.
