Section 2: Getting Started: Your Learning Outcomes
02:49

Welcome to the Project Management workshop. In the past few decades, organizations have discovered something incredible: the principles that have been used to create enormous successes in large projects can be applied to projects of any size to create amazing success. As a result, many employees are expected to understand project management techniques and how to apply them to projects of any size.

This workshop will give participants an overview of the entire project management process, as well as key project management tools that they can use every day.

Section 3: Key Concepts I
02:58

Before we get started, let’s make sure we all understand just what we mean by a project and by project management. We’ll also look at what a project manager’s role is.

Key Concepts 1
4 questions
Section 4: Key Concepts 2
04:06

Now that we understand what we mean by projects, project management, and project managers, let’s look at some of the other concepts related to projects. This module will look at the Project Management Institute, a global project management group that publishes and promotes project management standards, and its core ideas.

Key Concepts 2
4 questions
Section 5: Initiation 1
04:52

The first phase of project management is initiation. This is where the project starts to take shape. Stakeholders and team members work together to identify wants and needs, and then the project team creates a plan to accomplish the objectives with the time and budget available. This module will explore the first part of that process: identifying what success will look like for your particular project.

Initiation 1
5 questions
Section 6: Initiation 2
04:30

Once you have an idea of who your stakeholders are and what the project will achieve, it’s time to put it all in writing. This module will look at four key project documents: the statement of work, the project requirements document, the project planning worksheet, and the project charter.

Initiation 2
5 questions
Section 7: Planning 1
04:58

Congratulations! With the completion of the SOW, planning worksheet, and project charter, the initiation phase is complete. Now it’s time to plan the nuts and bolts of your project.

When building your plan, remember:

·Everything in the plan is a prediction.

·The only fact that you know for certain is that your plan is definitely not 100% right.

·Contingency needs to be built in to cope with the uncertainty.

5 questions
Section 8: Planning 2
06:45

The next part of the planning phase is to bring together the nuts and bolts information that we have gathered (the tasks to be performed, plus the time, resources, and costs required for each) and to create an actual plan for executing the project.

Planning 2
5 questions
Section 9: Planning Tools
04:45

In the last module, we looked at how to build a schedule in table format. This format will work well for small projects. However, for more complex projects, you will need additional tools. This module will explore four of the most popular tools, including graphical methods and Microsoft Project.

Planning Tools
4 questions
Section 10: Executing the Project
04:00

We have spent a lot of time talking about what the project will do and making plans for how to do it. Finally, it is time to get to work and put our plans into action.

Section 12: Closing Out
04:21

You’ve reached the point where all the tasks in your project plan have been checked off: the widget is built, the advertisements are on TV, and boxes are being shipped to customers. Before you consider the project complete, however, there are a few more things to be done.

Closing Out
5 questions
Section 13: Wrapping Up
00:48

Although this workshop is coming to a close, we hope that your journey to improve your project management skills is just beginning. Please take a moment to review and update your action plan. This will be a key tool to guide your progress in the days, weeks, months, and years to come. We wish you the best of luck on the rest of your travels!
