Project Management Fundamentals

In many organizations in our fast-paced-technology-intensive world, "just do it" is a way of life. Managers believe they can't afford the time it takes to practice good project management. However, it has become increasingly important that we manage and control our work and our businesses more efficiently. The Project Excellence series from VBH Project Consulting is designed with the busy professional in mind to give you skills that you can use immediately.

Organizations are turning to project management to help them plan and control their businesses. As a result, Project Management is recognized as one of the fastest growing professions today. Project Management Fundamentals provides the basics for project managers by introducing essential project management concepts and methods. Through discussion, workshops and real world examples, participants learn how to identify project components, organize them effectively and control the project from the earliest steps of developing the project charter through the final steps of a project - documenting lessons learned.
