Full Program Learning Outcomes:

This series of courses represent the foundation upon which project management expertise is built or sharpened. Individuals who are responsible for managing people, activities, schedules and budgets - for projects and/or parts of projects - should attend. Participants - across industries - will develop a full range of skills needed to deliver sound, solid and significant business results.

Individual Course Learning Outcomes:

  • CPC081 - A Proactive Perspective on Project Management
    Identify the root causes of project trouble and subsequently avoid the traps in which so many project managers fall as well as take swift action against the factors that trigger project trouble. Learn to proactively recognize the early signs of project trouble and implement the "better practices" to recover and bring a project back on track.
  • Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

    1. Implement practices to assess project health as a project progresses by leveraging meeting management and increasing communication in order to tangibly reduce the number of issues that challenge projects at their onset
    2. Leverage the lessons learned from prior projects by accessing organizational process assets (such as a Project Management Information System) in order to implement continuous improvement practices, implement practical process steps and leverage beneficial tools and techniques to prevent future project issues and challenges
    3.  Demonstrate the know-how to implement practical project trouble/recovery process steps by accessing organizational process assets (such as a Project Management Information System) in order to launch recovery steps in a timely manner and promote project success
  • CPC082 - Projects, Customers and Vision Alignment
    Pursue projects in alignment with the higher purpose and direction of your organization. The questions that should be asked during project initiation and early planning are: How is this project adding value to our organization? Is it aligned with our organizational vision? Is it the result of leveraging customer/user's input in gathering requirements?
  • Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

    1. Demonstrate the ability to think and planning strategically by adopting an assessment mechanism (such as a project intake scorecard)  in order to ensure that all project undertaken at an organizational level are in business alignment with the organizational vision and overall purpose of the performing organization undertaking them
    2.  Conduct requirements gathering activities by leveraging the use of templates, checklists as well as other tools and techniques depending on variables such as project size, complexity and visibility in order to publish pre-determined requirements documentation that sets up a project to be as successful as possible from the onset
  • CPC083 - Managing the Project Management Life Cycle
    Acquire the knowledge and understanding to readily apply the tools and techniques of sound project management best practices. As business management increases in complexity and as budgets get tighter, the discipline of project management becomes increasingly instrumental to delivering successful projects within budgets, on time, and with the expected results or outcomes.
  • Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

    1. Demonstrate a sound understanding of the project management terminology by leveraging the project management lexicon in order to improve communication across teams and team members as well as streamline the process of managing projects
    2. Outline sound project statement and objectives by articulating the project’s “triple constraints” and documenting a set of project objectives as a project’s direct results to include clear metrics of success in order to clearly frame the project and provide the targets that will ultimately ensure project success
    3. Organize the project’s key deliverables and work activities by applying the decomposition process and leveraging the use of mind-maps in order to develop a Work Breakdown Structure to outline all of the project work in a practical and implementable format from which all of the project-related process activities will ensue:  budgeting, scheduling, risk management, resources planning and quality planning
    4. Diagram the appropriate and logical sequencing of the project-related activities by assigning predecessors to each activity and drafting the project’s network diagram in order to display the interdependencies between each activity from which a project schedule (Gantt Chart/Critical Path) will be established to facilitate the scheduling and assignment of resources (RAM – Responsibility Assignment Matrix)
    5. Model the process by which project progress will be assessed by implementing ‘Earned Value Management’ as a best practice in order to measure a project’s health pro-actively and control the schedule and budget performance of a project in alignment with the project scope completion progress as well as standardize the reporting practices
    6. Process project change requests, control scope, manage risk and provide project closure by operating best industry practices in order to ensure appropriate control levels, communication standards and ultimately project success
  • CPC084 - The Leadership Dimension of Project Management
    Apply practical concepts and ethical principles of leadership in order to foster a project management environment that encourages transformation resulting in both individual and corporate growth. If project management is a science, project leadership is an art; learn about the leadership behaviors a leader is to demonstrate in order to build relationships, deliver results and ensure continuity.
  • Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

    1. Display personal leadership by practically demonstrating vision and purpose, motivation and passion, competence and expertise, perception and timing, and lastly positive mindset and attitude in order to promote alignment, leverage, credibility, momentum and accountability

  • CPC085 - Taking the Next Step and Getting Certified
    In an increasingly “projectized” world generating a high-demand for experienced and qualified project managers, the Project Management Professional (PMP)® Certification ensures that project managers are ready to meet the demands of projects across industries and across the globe; register in this course to: explore the types of certifications and their requirements, explore the components of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knoweldge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2013, assess your exam readiness, review practical study techniques and review the steps to pursue the certification.
  • Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

    1. Make an educated/informed decision whether to pursue getting PMP® Certified by understanding the cost (in terms of steps, budget, schedule and effort) of such an endeavor in order to ensure a successful (and almost stress-free) outcome
