Fundamental project management knowledge and skills are required to successfully manage all types

of projects. The practical application of standard project management methodology will be enhanced
with a workshop style approach, the use of participant case studies for practical exercises, and a
project simulation. This course will follow the guidelines established by the Project Management
Institute (PMI) and their Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) , 5 th Edition.

The course will provide the student with the ability to apply project management best practices in
initiating, planning, executing, and closing a project. During the workshop sessions, participants will
develop a project charter, perform a stakeholder analysis and use it in developing a communication
plan, develop a work breakdown structure, and conduct a risk analysis, as well as create a risk
register. Additionally, participants will learn effective techniques for monitoring and controlling a
project, as well as how to capture project lessons learned.

This course satisfies the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification 35 hour training
requirement.

o Develop a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)

o Defining task dependencies, resources, and estimating the level of effort


for the project schedule

o Determining critical path and float

Based on the class case study, participants will identify and analyze project stakeholders,
as well as develop a communication plan for each. Afterwards, the attendees will develop
a WBS for their case study prior to identifying task dependencies and level of effort
estimates for their project schedules.

Day 3

Project Planning and Project Execution

o Planning for quality

o Procurement planning

o Project risk analysis

o Project change control

Attendees will participate in a quality project competition and continue with the class
case studies from the previous two days. Participants will identify, assess, and develop
risk strategies for their project and complete a project risk register. Additionally, the
importance of project change control will be discussed in detail.

Day 4

Project Execution Simulation and Project Monitor/Control

o Project simulation game

Participant teams will compete in a project simulation game where the concepts from the
previous three days will be put into action. Project planning, risk analysis, resource
procurement and management, and the ability to re-plan based on project progress will
be the keys to success. Bonuses will not only be awarded for the team that delivers their
project first, but also for how well they did according to their planned budget and
schedule they submitted.

Day 5

Project Monitor/Control and Project Closing

o EVA analysis

o Project quality reviews

o Closing processes and conducting lessons learned

o Organizational change management

The course will wrap up with several hands-on EVA exercises, a simple methodology on
how to conduct lessons learned will be practiced, and a brief session to organizational
change management will be presented. Lastly, the course will end with a review of the
PMP certification requirements and process.
