The Fundamentals of Applied Project Management
Combine the theory and processes of project management and the various support activities and tools that are essential to a successful project initiative and project team. This includes communications, documentation, scheduling, and control systems that are integrated to help provide an end-to-end support system for a project. Discussions focus on the essential parts of a project, including tasks, objectives, timeline, cost, and owners. Establish a clear understanding of the linkages and the alignments between each, as well as a clear, efficient, and accurate representation for planning and organization. Assess differing project management meeting types and the preparations required for each, including scheduling, meeting management, meeting documentation, meeting minutes, site and equipment readiness, the action item registry, and the issues log. Develop a capstone work product to which you will apply the skills, knowledge, and tools from the courses that comprise the diploma program, which you will present. In addition, create a digital document management system (repository) to support the document management needs of the project and the team, integrating content across the modules of the program.
