Essentials of Project Management for the Non-Project Manager

To work together effectively on any project, everyone on the team needs to use a common language and have a clear understanding of all expectations. This unique project manager training seminar is designed for individuals with little or no prior knowledge of project management who serve on project management teams, those who simply want to know more about PM or those who are making the transition to project management. In just two days, you’ll develop an understanding of essential terminology and apply basic PM tools and techniques to increase your effectiveness both on the team and in your own functional area.
