More Info

Course "Project Management Overview for Auditors" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
What are the basic steps for implementing a project using Project Management methodology? What role will I have to play in implementation? What happens if I've never worked on a Project of this size before?
This class will explain what Project Management is and provide tools for understanding, and participating in, a Project. We'll cover how to write a clear and concise project statement, the basic phases of Project Management, and how to set up the project with measurable outcomes. We work through an example together that highlights how to set up the schedule, break a project down to manageable tasks, and talk about the reality of working on a Project while maintaining existing/ongoing workloads. We'll also discuss tools to track your Project, ways to minimize risk associated with the Project, and review a glossary of Project Management terms.
Why should you attend:
Projects without proper management tools are 'wish lists' instead of 'plans'. Using Project Management (PM) techniques from the Project Management Institute (PMI) increases the likelihood that projects will be completed on time and to target.
Areas Covered in the Session:
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to
• Write a clear and concise project statement
• Define the Four Phases of a Project
• Set up and monitor Project measurables.
• Understand the roles and responsibilities of each member in the Project Team
• Break down a Project into smaller tasks
• Schedule the work around existing commitments
• Discuss tools for Project Management (Visio and MS Project)
• Identify and mitigate risks associated with the projects
• Define Project Management terms and concepts
Who will benefit:
This course is intended for the beginner who may need to work on a Project; as a quick refresher for those who haven't done a formal Project in a while; and as a primer for those Project Managers who may need to explain PM methodologies in terms that make sense to the novice or uninitiated.
