Project Management Essentials: Part 2 - Project Monitoring & Control

  • Project Management
  • Course Code: 96007

Learn how successful project managers apply tools and techniques to real project challenges for effective and consistent results.

Project Management Essentials: Part 2 is part of our “essentials” project management series of workshops, and is designed to prepare project managers for the challenges they will face in the real world. This course focuses on project execution, monitoring and control, and project completion and is delivered in a style similar to Project Management Essentials: Part 1.

To support an effective transition from classroom learning to actual projects, we emphasize application of context and common sense to learned tools and techniques. Much of the learning during this course takes place through facilitated group discussion and hands-on exercises, in which learned techniques are applied to a series of realistic project scenarios. As a result,participants move well beyond an academic understanding of the tools, and leave the course with an understanding of how and where to apply the learned techniques on actual projects.

Course Reviews

  • Barbara Rickaby, Indigenous Services Canada Mar 25, 2019

    Course content was very helpful; I was able to understand forecasting and earned value through the examples. Christine's teaching pace was good. She was very knowledgeable and conveyed the material effectively. She took the time to explain concepts the class struggled with in greater detail. I would absolutely take another one of her courses.

    Kristine made the course very easy to understand and applicable to my current job and career path. The content and teaching style exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this to anybody looking to further their work performance and knowledge. The workbook provided is also filled with everything discussed and an essential tool when reviewing the content. Kristine was an amazing Facilitator and even made math easy to understand! She used real world, every day scenarios to relate the learning more efficiently and truly put the quality in the content we were learning and gave us the appropriate amount of work time for every topic. I would gladly recommend and take another course with her. Thank you again! The staff in the office are all very friendly and are more than willing to assist with any inquiries. The food provided was delicious and health conscious. The office itself is very clean, well kept and quality furniture is used. I enjoyed my time there and look forward to returning at the next opportunity.

    It would be good to have the slide handouts in colour Kristine is very knowledgeable and provides great context for the material Overall great experience. The staff are very responsive. What would take things from great to outstanding is if I could have been accommodated better for the food. Being told just don't eat the chicken or premaking a plate which contains the sides is not an accommodation. I had to bring my own lunch.
