Intro to Project Management

Project Management Workshops in NYC

The workshop begins with a review of project management terminology so that students learn to speak the language of a project manager. Students will obtain a firm grasp of the different methods and strategies used in the field of project management. Moving deeper into project management theory, students will explore a five-stage model of project management that includes the following stages: Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring, and Closing.

The initiation phase covers how to create a proposal and a business case for the project. Students will learn to identify needs, set a timeline, create a budget, and communicate with stakeholders in the planning phase. The execution phase covers identifying project range, budget, challenges, and risks. In the monitoring phase students will explore ongoing project management tasks, and finally, the closing stage will discuss how to finish and transfer project deliverables.

  • Want an overview of project management theories and methodologies
