Project Management Fundamentals
2 Days | 1.4 CEUs

Overview:

Industrial engineers and others associated with productivity improvement in service or manufacturing organizations often must become project leaders. This seminar focuses on the skills needed to lead and manage projects successfully in those settings. During this seminar, you will develop a simulated project plan as well as an initial plan for a project at your own facility that you will present for seminar discussion. The seminar presentation will use the definitions and language of ANSI/PMI 99-001-2000, the project management body of knowledge standard.

What You Will Learn:

  • Determine effective cost controls in project execution.
  • Develop an effective project plan.
  • Recognize and manage the risks involved in project execution.
  • Explain the responsibilities of leading and participating in team development.
