Course Description


In a rapidly changing marketplace, executives must employ everything at their disposal to achieve business results. One of the tools at your disposal is the power of effective project management. Effective project management is much more than low level tools. Instead it is a combination of consistent, repeatable processes and best practices that are vital to increased success rates for all projects. Unless an organization can produce predictable results, time after time, it stands to lose a great deal more than money. Excellence in project management can guarantee the desired results. (Executive Guide to Project Management published by PMI, ©2006)

Project Management for Executives provides executives and project sponsors with an understanding of project management that goes beyond the basic tools involved. This course focuses on the sponsor or executive’s role in project success.
