Defining and managing the project budget can be a challenge-especially for those of us who are not financial experts. In this short course, you'll learn why it's important to establish how you will manage costs up front, best practices for cost identification and estimating, and how to develop a budget. You'll also discover key metrics that can help you manage the budget throughout the project life cycle.

This virtual short course, specifically designed to give you a quick convenient way to renew and refresh your project management skills, maintain your Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification, and earn PDUs on your own time, at your own pace.
