Overview

Learn about project management from a multidisciplinary perspective, as we cover fundamental tools and techniques for managing a broad range of projects.

This course is part of a MicroMasters® Program

You will learn about the project management life cycle from initiation to closing. We will address the behavioral and quantitative facets of project management, as well as the use of methods, tools and techniques for the initiation, planning, execution and closing of projects. The course will be divided by the project life cycle phases.

First, we will cover project initiation. We will review projects in organizations, project selection models, the project manager role and project organization structures to better understand how a project is initiated. You will also learn how to create a key project management deliverable, the project charter.

Second, we will cover the project-planning phase. You will learn how to build a comprehensive project management plan covering the key aspects of risk, quality, scope, schedule, cost, time, resource and communications.

Third, we will cover the project execution phase. We will explore the monitoring and control of a project including earned value analysis and project reporting. Case studies and examples will be used to help you understand the correct actions for a project manager to take to keep a project in control.

Finally, we will cover the project closing phase, where we explore the tasks to complete an effective project closure.

The Project Management Life Cycle  Certificate is part of the RIT Project Management MicroMasters Program from EdX in parntnership with Rochester Institute of Technology - RITx that is designed to teach the skills and behaviors necessary to be successful in a project management career. In order to qualify for the MicroMasters Credential, you will need to earn a verified certificate in each of the three courses as well as pass a capstone exam.
