Our IT Project Management Practice course is a practical course in information technology (IT) projects for experienced project managers. Acquire the knowledge and skills used by successful IT project managers in four key areas: project requirements, change, communications and risk. Learn how to turn business goals/objectives into project deliverables within an IT system. Study best practices for meeting demands in a rapidly changing business landscape. Master the communication tools and techniques you need to identify the correct audiences for project information and to tailor communications for them. Develop the skills you need to identify project risks and take the necessary steps to mitigate them. Also learn the differences between traditional and agile project management methodologies, and study their pros and cons and their applications. This project management course uses a combination of formal classroom training – based on the PMBOK and other best industry practices – and team exercises.
