Applied Tools and Techniques in Project Management

Applied Tools and Techniques in Project Management is a full-day seminar for experienced project managers or project team members. In this seminar, participants will explore the phases of project management, with a focus on scheduling techniques and strategies for managing resources. 

The course offers value to both experienced project managers who are looking to refresh and augment their skillset and new PM’s who want access to practical tools that can be applied immediately.

Note: This course was previously named Project Management Level II. Project managers or project team members with 0 to 2 years of experience should begin with Introduction to Project Management.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Describe the complex and multi-faceted role of the project manager
  • Identify the components of a scope statement
  • Develop a work breakdown structure (WBS)
  • Identify project resources and cost estimates
  • Describe scheduling methods and calculate a critical path
  • Compare actual and estimated costs
  • Identify how to recover a “crashed” project
