Project Integration Management
This course is focused on the processes and activities used to identify, define, combine, unify, and coordinate the various processes and project management activities across the life cycle of a project. Project management integration includes unification, consolidation, communication, and integrative actions that draw upon the project management knowledge groups and practices, which make up the framework of structured project management methodology. You will be actively engaged in studying and applying the components of integration management in the planning, execution, and management of a project. The core of this course is a capstone project that will provide you with the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge, tools, and experience you have gained to a team simulation project. Each team will be responsible for the planning and the execution of a discovery project, which will entail developing a project proposal, initiating the project, creating a business case for, obtaining the approval of the proposed project, delivering a team presentation to the executive sponsor and the steering committee, creating a project charter to authorize the project, and delivering a written report to describe and discuss the project management framework to be followed.
