The course introduces the use of project management to achieve goals, produce products, deliver services, and meet targeted objectives. Participants will examine the role of the project manager and their involvement in managing the life-cycle of a project through defining task, time management, cost management, scheduling and resource allocation. Participants will use tools available to monitor the progress of projects, e.g., Gantt Charts and Network Diagrams during the project simulation exercises.
This program is a collaboration with Merit Career Development.
