Project Management Fundamentals  

Overview

Project Management Fundamentals teaches students basic project-management techniques, including  managing time and costs. Students will identify the features and attributes of a project, the steps and variables of the project management process, the effects of environmental, socio-economic and organizational structure issues, and the responsibilities of a project manager. Course activities also cover defining the project scope, writing a project charter, developing a work breakdown structure, identifying time management components, describing schedule development, using mathematical analysis techniques, and assigning resources. Students will also learn how to estimate resource costs, create a capital budget, control the project costs, and compute a project's estimate at completion (EAC) and variance at completion (VAC). The manual is designed for quick scanning in the classroom and filled with interactive exercises that help ensure student success.
