About the Class

The course “basic project management”, introduces the participants to the “art of project management”. It provides the participants with the necessary vocabulary, definitions, and terms and terminology. The course guides the participants through a project in 10 easy to implement steps combining theory and practical applications. After completing the course, the participants will be able to apply their freshly obtained knowledge in their day-to-day jobs.

Project management has become a need for any company to survive in these fast-changing times. Successful projects drive companies and determine their success over other companies.

This course follows PMI standards and terminology. It is a practical application of how the project should be run to be successful. Training has been defined as a major contributor to project success of projects. This training will provide you all you have to do in a logical and step by step approach.

The basic project management course starts with evaluating where projects come from and how projects are selected. This is followed by definitions of important terminology every project manager should know about and after the introduction of the project management process and life cycle, the project is divided into 10 logical steps that will help you to make your projects a success.

Projects and the project management environment change constantly. Project managers have to adjust to these changes constantly. Since the industry went "lean", the lean revolution also influenced projects and project management. Lean principles have changed the way projects are done today. Project management was typically done in a deterministic way, using waterfall, and that lead to problems in many projects. A deterministic approach is not flexible and changes are discouraged, complex and even avoided even when they would be necessary. The deterministic approach has lead to project disasters in a specific type of project. In an adaptive approach, lean approach, projects are managed differently, there is more freedom to manage changes.
