APPLIED PROJECT MANAGEMENT FUNDAMENTALS

 

Course: Applied PM Fundamentals

Components: Classroom (16 hours)

 

Overview

In this time of reduced budgets and organizational change, many IT organizations are challenged with finding ways to continue to deliver projects in a highly constrained environment.

In some cases, this may result in the management of projects by individuals who may have been temporarily allocated into the role of ‘Project Manager’ in order to maintain project execution without the incurred costs of a formal project manager.

In order to assist our customers to realize this value, Corporate Oasis has established the ‘Applied PM Fundamentals’ training program.
