Project Management

My Distance Learning College

Description

Although the term is commonly used, no specific definition exists. If you ask two different people what project management means to them then you will often have two different answers. Often though, when one talks of project management one is referring to a process of managing a project. However, this process is by no means simple. Project management involves a number of interrelated activities which are needed to achieve a specific goal or set of objectives.

Unlike most Project Management courses, this diploma course introduces you to the field of project management in a unique self-paced and practical format. This course presumes that you have no prior knowledge of managerial or technical subjects and will guide you, step-by-step, on your project journey.

Topics in this course include:

  • The project life-cycle
  • Planning and quality events
  • Gantt and Pert charts
  • Implementing a project
  • Evaluating performance
  • Good leadership
  • Managing conflict
  • Feasibility studies
  • Control chart
  • Delegating responsibilities
  • Budget control chart
  • Appraising a project
  • Strategy framework
  • Negotiation skills
