What is the course about?
This training program on Software Project Management is divided into four parts. This is the last part.
This covers Project Quality Management,Characteristics and Assessment of Software Quality,Quality Plan Process,Quality Assurance Process,Software test,White box tests,Black,box tests,Regression tests,Software test case Design and Components,Software test Automation,Configuration Management,Baseline,Maintenance,Project,Communication Management,Communication Network.

Quality within the context of a project is concerned with two variables:  Quality of the project deliverables (products) and quality of project management deliverables. This course first provides an overview of the quality concepts that will assist Project Managers run their projects in a way that results in a higher level of customer satisfaction and eliminates or significantly reduces rework. Class participants will then develop quality management, quality assurance, and quality control plans that will focus on both project and project management deliverables.

In this course, you will learn about strategies that are used for testing software. You will learn about the verification and validation processes of testing and the difference between the two. You will learn about the different levels of testing. You will learn about system testing and its categories and strategies. You will learn about integration testing, when it is applied and how it works. You will learn about the difference in testing an Object-orientated program compared to the traditional procedural program.

Software development is not a straightforward process and often requires multiple iterations between the development phases. To cope with this dynamic nature of software development, software engineers need to control the changes in the development process. Software Configuration Management (SCM) is the activity that helps us control the evolution of a software project. This course is a comprehensive review of SCM as a software-engineering discipline supporting all life-cycle phases by relying on tools and techniques to manage changes in software, including documentation, code, interfaces, and databases.

Managing project communications is one of the most important duties of a project manager. Project managers must communicate with project owners, team members, and other stakeholders, whether they are internal or external to the organization. Effective communication can only occur when project mangers identify all the people or organizations impacted by the project. Knowing the potential impact or support each stakeholder could generate allows project managers to create effective strategies that can be critical to project success. This online course helps project managers assess their project communication needs, plan for meeting those needs, and effectively communicate project status and forecasts throughout the project life-cycle. This course will familiarize you with the language and methodology commonly used by professional publications, associations, and your peers in the project management profession.

There is a wealth of information on project management. But unfortunately, we have come to realise that only a small fraction applies to software project management. This course covers new practices and new ideas Project Managers ought to consider to make their software development projects succeed. 

Please remember that this is a serious course on Management. I believe that subjects like this cannot be learned in few hours. It required continuous practice. Students may have to put a lot of efforts in order to become expert manager and make the best use of this course. This course covers the essential information that every manager needs to know about management skills.

Software Programmer, Mobile Developer, Project Manager

I  was apparently not a diligent student. I worked with C/C++ and HTML, CSS, JavaScript since 12 years. I speak to the world on software freedom. From the beginning of my career I have always worked in large and small teams. While programming has been more of a individual activity, it is the collaboration in teams that can make and break a project. I have been interested in algorithms and data structures and its implementations especially in Java since university.

I am a co-author of various manuals, and has edited and reviewed more than a dozen other books. I wrote columns that provided keen insights into the little algorithmic nuggets that we use in our programs. My favorite books includes  "Writing Efficient Programs", "More Programming Pearls" and "Programming Pearls". The best programmers not only continuously improved the quality of their work, they also influence other members of their team.

I learned about project management and team interaction working at various organisations. I still believe that humans are still at the beginning of the code revolution. Programmers and users are still imitating what came before, and haven’t even imagined all that could be in the future. One thing I am sure of is that code is a type of language, based on the same logic as Sanskrit, and for the first time in history, language can change the physical world. Programming is a literature.

I've always had a passion for teaching in seminars and corporations during my consulting projects. My online school eLearningMedium gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge with students of all backgrounds and experiences across the globe! I'm really excited for this opportunity to bring to you real-world practical experience!

I've plans of making some of the courses about Algorithms and Data Structures, Java, HTML5, Software Engineering and Software Project Management. I give all my heart into creation of courses. I always try to explain everything the easiest possible way. I'm sure that my courses will help you in the adventure.
