About this Course

Good project management skills can often make the difference between the success or failure of a project. In order to be an effective engineer, you must be able to competently organize and manage the time and resources for a given project. Even when you’re not a team leader, this skill set can greatly influence your ability to contribute to business value and boost your career. When you’re a team leader, these skills are even more important and difficult to perfect.

This course focuses on the fundamental skills you need to effectively align your projects with company business strategies, build motivated teams, select appropriate technology tools, manage risk, and communicate project objectives and progress to senior management. We’ll explore a combination of case studies, team projects and other knowledge to gain insight and better understand what determines successful project performance.
