OVERVIEW

Project management has become one of the most in-demand fields in the market today. It’s not uncommon for individuals to find themselves cast in the role of project manager, even if many of these responsibilities fall well outside their job description.
In our fun, highly interactive three-hour workshop, we will focus specifically on the basics of project management for beginners. We will cover everything from project planning, project management methodologies, to the “soft skills” needed to successfully facilitate a project.
