This course begins by answering the question, “What is project management?” Learn as Andy Crowe defines roles, tells the history, and profiles this dynamic profession. You will learn how to define the scope and goals of your project, how to create a schedule, draft a budget and integrate risk by identifying and assessing the project’s uncertainty. This course also focuses on leadership components, such as communication excellence and the very essence of project management—knowing how to lead a team.

Introduction to Project Management Fundamentals dives into diverse projects for organizations ranging from health-care providers, to the Georgia Aquarium, to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
