Managing a complex project means not only having fantastic project management
skills, but also understanding how to deal with the chaos of today's workplace.
Technology, requirements, partnerships, and competitive strategies are
continually updating and transforming and a strong project manager must learn
how to adapt to these changes while leading the project to successful
completion. This class will help you master dealing with these complexities and
lead with success.
Learn to determine the level of complexity of your project, develop tactics
to manage that complexity, and discover strategies for taking your project team
"to the edge of chaos" where innovation and creativity happen. Avoid
being caught off guard by change, and prepare yourself with ways to optimize
your team's performance and manage the unknown.
In class activities that comprise 75% of this course, you will practice
determining complexity and learn how to keep your approach flexible to manage
the constant adjustment of complex projects in today's workplace.
Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
