Course Overview

These easy video tutorials are the fastest way to master modern project management! Project Management LiveLessons teaches the most important elements in project management: organizing your project, developing project scope and risk assessments, planning and scheduling, monitoring and tracking progress, and dealing with the problems most likely to derail your project. Drawing on 25+ years’ experience as a world-class project management consultant, researcher, and instructor, Jeffrey Pinto covers many of the key managerial and technical areas included in the Project Management Institute’s Body of Knowledge (PMBoK). First, Pinto explains what makes projects unique, why they’re so important, and how the project lifecycle is organized. Next, he shows how to prepare crucial project artifacts including scope statements, work authorizations, and Work Breakdown Structures (WBS)… how to manage and mitigate project risks… how to plan and schedule projects and how to create project activity networks… how to use critical path, PERT, and Gantt charts… how to track projects using sophisticated Earned Value techniques… and how to efficiently close or terminate a project and learn the lessons it can teach. Whatever your experience or industry, you can become a more confident, skilled project manager—and fast!
