1. Intermediate Project Management: Achieve Your Goals Through Project Management

Project management is not just for certain industries or job titles. Most of us are expected to complete assignments that are not a usual part of our job and to get the job done well, within a budget, and on time. This course will share some project management techniques that can help you achieve your goals. We recommend that you complete “Project Management Fundamentals” before beginning this course.

In this course, you will focus on the last three stages of the project life cycle: planning, execution, and termination. This includes identifying tasks and resources; using scheduling techniques like the work breakdown structure, Gantt charts, and network diagrams; preparing a budget; executing a project; and controlling changes.

2. Project Management Fundamentals: Learn The Basics Of Project Management

The basics of project management can help you get things done at home and at work. This course will familiarize you with the most common terms and practices of project management.

In this course, you will learn what a project is and what a project manager does. You will also learn about the life cycle of a project. In particular, you will focus on the conceptual phase of project management, where you identify, prioritize, and scope a project idea.

3. Advanced Project Management: Learn the Advance Skills in Project Management

It's easy to forget the "manager" part of your "project manager" title amongst all the activity during a project. However, it is crucial that you hone your management skills as they are an important part of your success as a project manager. There are also some advanced project management techniques that you can master to bring your projects to the next level.

In this course, you will focus on two areas of advanced project management. The first area is advanced project management techniques, such as communication plans and status meetings. The second area is general management skills, such as building a winning team and rewarding team members.

4. Project Management Training: Understanding Project Management: Execute Projects Effectively And Efficiently

The Project Management Institute defines project management as, “The application of knowledge, skills, and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently.” This course will give you the project management tools that you need to plan, manage, and execute small to medium sized projects.

This in-depth course will take you through all aspects of project management. First, you will consider what a project is and what a project manager does. Then, you will work through the four stages of the project life cycle: conceptual, planning, execution, and termination. You will also learn some supporting skills, like teamwork, communication, and presentation.

5. Strategic Planning: Learn How To Strategize A Solid Plan For Your Business

A solid strategic plan is essential for business success. It should outline your values, mission, vision, strategy, and your plan for getting there.

If you and the people who work with you don’t understand where the company is going, they may all develop their own priorities and actually prevent you from getting where you need to be. Part of getting everyone on board is creating a strategic plan complete with the organization’s values, vision, and mission. Then, there’s the challenge of bringing these principles to life in a meaningful way that people can relate to. This course will help you describe what you want to do and get people where you want to go.

A good strategic plan describes what the owners want the business to do and how to get there. This course will help you identify all the pieces of a strategic plan and how to put them together to create something meaningful.

Although I personally has some struggles with this course, it was very easy to follow. The additional feature of the voice text proved very useful when making notes.
There was a few faults with the website itself, which lead to after saving the course for the day and returning the following day I was unable to select the option "resume" therefore, having to either restart the course again or find a time where I can fully focus a dedicate a few hours straight without coming away from the computer to prevent losing my progress.
