In an era of rapid social change, brutal competition, and thinning profits, project management is in every aspect of our world. It helps us interface with customers, support design and testing of new products, automate routine administrative and accounting functions, track inventories, and even facilitate collaborative project development in virtual teams.

This course moves you into the world of a project manager. It is built on integrating your project management knowledge of the fundamentals and basic principles grounded in Project Management Institute. Using real world case studies as well as you optionally developing your own project, we will act as project managers … not implementing nor designing, but rather determining what work and tasks need to be completed by the project team to introduce a new product to market while meeting supply chain life cycle deliverables. The course incorporates the knowledge areas of Project Management as defined by the Project Management Institute's "Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK).
