General description

A project is a “temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service.” As such, a project may require a unique approach to its management and administration. This course examines the process of applied project management using defined project management disciplines as a means to understanding the day-to-day operational issues faced by project managers. Project management is a cross-disciplinary field with applications in non-profit organizations, governmental institutions, and all types of industry and business. At the end of this course the student should be able to develop, execute, and control a project plan based upon specific metrics for success including the unique variables of differing disciplines.
