Course Description

During resource planning, the project team is selected and assignments are made. The project manager is responsible for negotiating for resources, training the team, and effectively resolving conflict. During risk planning, risks are identified and evaluated. Risk responses are planned accordingly. A SWOT analysis is also performed to determine strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so you can effectively put principles to work at your own organization.
