Project Management for Non-Project Managers

GK# 400002

Course Overview


More and more employees are getting promoted from within to become project managers. The assumption is that established employees are good project managers since they fully understand a company's products and how best to meet the quality and quantity requirements set forth by upper management. However, product knowledge is not enough.

In this course, those of you who are not professional project managers will learn the fundamentals of project management. You will learn how to incorporate established project management processes into the organization, making the most of your skills and experience and allowing employers to develop management and leadership skills from within.

For on-demand learning, you will have access to this course for 12 months from the purchase date.
