Requirements
  • There are no prerequisites for this course, other than a desire to manage small projects well and the dedication required to complete the work.
Description

Are you having trouble getting things done? Has your boss given you a project to run, and you don't know where to start? Or are you feeling overwhelmed by the sheer mountain of work in front of you?

"Everyday Project Management" can help give you the tools to overcome this.

This course includes...

  • Nine video lectures in clear and simple language and minimal jargon
  • Seven quizzes and a final exam so you get instant feedback on how well you learned the material
  • Seven assignments that will be personally reviewed and graded by an expert Project Manager. You'll get feedback on your work, which is critical to learning project management

This course is great for those who manage small projects at work (marketing campaigns, annual budgeting cycles, etc) or at home (family events, holidays).

Who is the target audience?
  • FOR professionals that run small projects in the course of performing their responsibilities.
  • FOR people who want to learn how to manage small projects effectively... in their work or home lives.
  • NOT for professional Project Managers.
  • NOT for technologists, Business Analysts, or those in similar roles who will need in-depth project management training.
