Virtually every organization has to manage projects, but the key is to manage a project efficiently, on schedule and on budget. To help local businesses and organizations successfully manage their projects, the UVICELL Center will be teaching a ‘Fundamentals of Project Management’ course. The three-day, introductory course will be held 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 27 through Friday, July 29. The session will be held at the UVICELL Center on the St. Thomas Campus.
The course will provide valuable insight into the basic elements of planning and executing a project, and it will cover standard industry practices using the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) Guide. It is open to individuals who are new to project management, those who manage projects as a secondary part of their jobs, managers who are ultimately responsible for the projects and experienced project managers who may want to update their skills.
Participants will be provided with an introduction to project management, learn how to structure a project, examine project processes, gain an understanding of project management knowledge areas, conduct effective project meetings, and identify characteristics of effective project teams and barriers.
Space in the course is limited and individuals must register to participate. For fees or more information on the program, call the UVICELL Center at 693-1100 or visit http://cell.uvi.edu.
