Introduction to Project Management
Entrepreneurs must know how to successfully plan and execute projects on time and within budget. Students learn the basic concepts of project management based on the best practices in this field. The tools and techniques include learning to identify project priorities, assigning and managing resources, budgeting, tracking progress and communicating with stakeholders. Hands-on practice is provided using project scheduling software as a means to understand the work breakdown structure, critical-path activities and resource loading. Case studies are used in order to demonstrate the practical application of each concept to the planning and completion of project activities.
