MPM210 Introduction to Project Management

This course is designed to provide an overview and introduction to the discipline of project management, coupled with an examination of the techniques that project managers use to complete their projects on schedule, within budgeted cost, and according to specified scope and quality. Using materials from the PMBOK® Guide, students study the operational framework of project management relating to the four phases of the project lifecycle (starting the project, organizing and preparing, carrying out the work, and ending the project) and the five project management process groups (initiating processes, planning processes, executing processes, monitoring and controlling processes, and closing processes). This course provides the basis for the development of project management skills in subsequent project management courses.
