William J. Scott, P.E.
Today, industry is embracing a bold, new view of the process of management. Change, driven by the desire and pressure to improve, creates short-term objectives. These short-term objectives require us to improve upon all aspects of operations, including our traditional management techniques. These objectives, which we call "projects", define unique, one time tasks requiring workers from many disciplines. Projects are usually too large and complex to be executed, effectively within the traditional, functional management organization. Therefore, a new organizational form, called project management, has emerged. This results-oriented, roll up your sleeves, course is designed for project managers, functional managers and key project team members. In other words, this course is for the very people who are accountable and responsible for achieving predetermined multi-disciplinary project performance objectives on schedule, within allocated cost while delighting customers! Personnel, who support projects, either directly or indirectly, should also take this course.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
