Description

All of us, without exception, occasionally find ourselves managing small and medium and even large projects. Think of the last event you planned, or your last vacation. Remember the new product you developed, the business you established, the movie you filmed, or the book you wrote. Think about all the goals you achieved and the complex tasks you completed. These are all examples of professional and personal projects that each of us is required to manage. Each project, large or small, requires a clear definition of goals and objectives and designation of a clear path to achieving them. The project must be planned and a “Project Compass” must be developed.

The Project Compass defines the objectives of the project, its stakeholders and the inherent benefits for them, the project life cycle, the project's outcomes and milestones, the resources required to execute the project, the risks that threaten during its execution, etc.

This course is designed for all of you that are required to manage different projects – in your professional lives in addition to your work, or in your personal lives and it will guide you – step by step, until the approval of the project and beyond so that you’ll start your project on the right foot.

  • This course is for anyone required to manage all sorts of projects from time to time.
