Project Management Foundations: Managing in a Virtual World (Online)

This online program is designed for current and new project managers, and is available as part of our Executive Certificate in Project Management or our Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership.

Description

Today’s unprecedented work environment and future uncertainties have put a premium on project management. But at a time when profitable outcomes are more important for your business than ever before, those results are harder to achieve. Whether you are a seasoned project manager facing new and difficult challenges or are dealing with the complexity of getting your own projects done at a distance, Project Management Foundations: Managing in a Virtual World will help you sharpen your skills and improve your efficiency and effectiveness. Conducted across four live, synchronous online modules, this program is delivered in manageable three-hour blocks.

Based on decades of research (and experience working through previous crises), the program uses a two-pronged approach to help you succeed. First, you will explore the most common reasons why projects fail, and how to spot potential pitfalls before they derail your project. Second, you will gain proven tools and powerful techniques that will guide you through the project management process.

Project Management Foundations: Managing in a Virtual World is delivered online in a fully live format following best practices and principles for distance learning. Unlike other virtual programs, it builds a virtual classroom community that allows you to engage with other program participants and share your own experiences and challenges. It also includes exercises and case studies that will provide you with concrete tools you can implement immediately. The program is accredited by the Project Management Institute and counts toward the education requirement for Project Management Professionals (PMPs) and aspiring PMPs.

Faculty:

John Juzbasich, D.Ed.(c), MLD, PMP, partner at Merit Career Development. John has been managing projects and teaching project management for over a decade. His business experience includes a successful career at IBM and a variety of high technology firms.

Who Should Attend?

Existing and new project managers who want to explore fundamentals, avoid common mistakes, and significantly improve their success rates.

  • Create a stakeholder analysis and engagement plan that involves key executives in a project
  • Break down a project into manageable activities and sequence those activities to use resources most effectively
  • Establish project schedules and spending plans
  • Learn and apply specific techniques for project risk management, including premortems

Program Fee: $995 (over half off regular fee - Special Pandemic Pricing!)

We are aware that almost everyone is wrestling with budget cutbacks, lost revenue and employment furloughs. We are willing to explore ways in which we can work together during this difficult time. Contact us at execed@lehigh.edu to set up a time to speak with us about your needs.
