This two-part course will cover everything from defining your scope, estimating work and costs, establishing a plan, initiating the project, using metrics to track your progress, and harvesting lessons-learned at closing.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

• Recognize key PM concepts

• Understand the different stages of a project, and the inputs/outputs needed at each stage

• Identify metrics for tracking progress
