Effectively Managing Small Projects e-Class

Earn Five PDUs!

Much of the work that you do can be organized as a project. When the projects are large, they need to be managed with formal project management discipline.

But many projects are not large. They are small work efforts that need to be organized and managed efficiently, but not with the full rigor and structure of formal project management discipline. These are the projects of accountants, teachers, administrators and many others. These projects represent the vast majority of all work executed in businesses all over the world.

This class is focused on teaching fundamental work management techniques and skills to these non-project management professionals. Students will learn how to understand the work that is requested, how to organize the work, how to manage the work and how to execute the work. Underlying the class will be the need to proactively communicate to manage expectations every step of the way.
