This course provides practical skills, concepts, and principles you can take back to the job – along with insights you’ll need to adapt them to specific project environments. This practical perspective is designed into the learning flow by minimizing time spent in instructor-led segments (~30%) and maximizing time devoted to interactive events (~70%). Throughout the course, we deploy a variety of types of interactive events, ranging from:

Whole group discussions
Multiple configurations of structured activities (individual, paired, small group, and whole class)
Case study based team exercises (3 basic cases are provided, which can be modestly tailored to the learners’ needs in the classroom in real time.)
The goal of this course is to achieve quality performance through effective planning and control. We use a process orientation and an analytical, systems-oriented approach to project-related problem solving and decision making. Throughout the course, we integrate the need for collaboration and clear communications among people, often in multiple organizations. In addition, we do highlight these interpersonal and relationship skills in two specific areas:

Module 2 – People & Projects
Module 8 – Executing, Communicating and Developing the Team

There was time to ask questions, but the time for answering the questions seemed really short. I did not recieve any instructions prior to the class about testing my computer--after an hour of missed class time, I figured out that Google Chrome could not be used to enter the class. I would have been good for some people to know ahead of time that a microphone would be required, or highly recommended. I liked the interactive format, but sometimes it took a lot of class time to use it.

I am fairly new to Project Management so it was a good introduction. It would have been helpful to have a templated form for capturing project progress from project team members. Also, a bit more of a focus on the team management with scenarios for the forming, storming, norming to aid project managers in handling these phases.

very useful and intersting. I am already mentally developing my team's estimation process as we go - right now it is seat of the pants, always scrambling about and never accurate at all so this is going to help us get better at the up front stuff so we have less chaos down the road. An attitude change we need is to see this work as ours, not the overall PM from PMO - if we do this also, then we are ready to feed the info to the overall PM and feel as confident as possible instead of crossing our fingers once we give estimates....

This session was great - there were quite a few real day to day situations that were described. Additionally, some of the tools are also things that I tend to do but not necessarily in a formal constructed way and having the formal structure or tool I feel aids to make the effort more efficient. In summary I felt that the session was more practical and I really did enjoy it. Just to be critical - i guess i would like to see some more example for the discussion defining business and project requiremets and what their difference is and the different types of scope.
