Description

Filled with real world examples from accounting and finance projects, this course introduces the concept of Projects, Project Management, and the Tools and Techniques used to manage projects.

In this course we learn the concept of what a Project is by discussing some of the criteria to determine when work would be considered a Project.  This leads to a discussion on the pros and cons of using formal project management methods to complete project work. We review the Project Management Institute's five project management process groups (Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, Closing).  

Finally we examine some of the common project management tools and techniques you may encounter in your work place. The Business case, the Project Charter (and its importance!), budget management tools, and more will be discussed.  Examples used throughout the course focus on accounting and finance related projects.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone interested in Finance, Accounting, or related fields.
  • Anyone interested in Human Resources (HR) or related fields.
  • Anyone interested in Marketing or related fields.
