Role of the Project Manager


The primary objective of this course is to acquaint students with a broad overview of project management and the roles that a project manager plays in the five primary processes involved in managing projects. In this course, the skills needed to successfully play these roles are identified and discussed. In addition, learning the life cycles of typical projects provides a basis for understanding the variety of skills needed, how these skills can be assembled, and how they relate to each other. Informal case studies and exercises are used to illustrate application of these skills.

Topics include:

  • An overview of the five primary project-management processes
  • Writing an effective project plan; developing successful project schedules
  • Executing and controlling the project plan
  • The "triple constraint" and how it affects the project manager
  • Understanding project phases and project life cycles

Note(s): Project Management Institute--PMP 15 Professional Development Units; HRCI--PHR, SPHR and GPHR general recertification credit, 13.75 hours.
