In the current business climate effectively managing projects and project teams at a distance is more important than ever. Almost every project has team members, customers, suppliers and stakeholders across some geographic divide…whether that’s across town or around the world. In the past projects were managed as if all participants resided within the same office building – but now project teams are operating entirely virtually, where the core team no longer has the opportunity to meet face to face.
The new reality of remote project management has challenged traditional execution processes and organizations are looking for ways to adapt. In the Online Project Management online certificate students will learn about all aspects of successfully working with project teams in the virtual world and will gain a better understanding of the change management process to drive higher levels of adoption at a faster rate
The online certificate features 7 modules that will explore all aspects of managing teams through technology. Each module will allow the learner to gain new understanding and awareness, research optimal solutions, and apply learning in their own work environment.
