IT Project Management


Description: 

Identify, assess, and manage typical IT projects.

We used our years of experience training IT professionals to develop a course uniquely suited to the needs of the IT professional. Students of this project management training course report major improvements in project estimation, increased credibility with their customers, effective risk management, better control over scope creep, and an overall satisfaction with the positive impact on their company's operations.

Learn the fundamentals and best practices of project management methodology as applied to IT initiatives, and practice and master the skills you need to deliver IT projects on time, within budget, and to specification. Examine all aspects of IT projects, including hardware, software, vendor relationships, communicating with different audiences, and working with local and remote teams. Learn to determine project scope, set and manage stakeholder expectations, identify and manage IT risks, and meet quality standards. Learn how to overcome the most common pitfalls of IT project success.

Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
