Project Management

Regardless of whether your team would benefit from one day of training in Project Management or five, Quinlan Executive Education can help. Each of our customized project management courses complies with the Project Management Institute's most recent version of the PMBOK®, and we offer several options tailored to your organization's Project Management training needs.

As budgets get smaller, deadlines get tighter, and projects get more complex, organizations that employ formally trained project managers are rewarded with immediate savings in time and money. Without formal training, individuals must develop their own processes for managing projects through trial and error, leading to inefficient outcomes and use of resources. Effective project management involves building and managing teams, controlling costs, developing timelines, managing risk, meeting deadlines, and solving problems to bring projects in on time and on budget.

This program will improve organizational performance by providing industry-standard tools approved by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) to help successfully manage any type of project regardless of scope or industry. Focusing on the proven body of knowledge behind effective project management, this customized program allows intact work groups to practice these concepts in a project-based team environment. Time is built into the program for sharing insights, past experiences, and best practices make the course even more relevant and applicable for all participants.

Completion of this customized Project Management Certificate program fulfills the 35 hours of project management education required for PMP® certification through the Project Management Institute.®
