          Module 1: Project Management: Observe, Track, and Report

          After a project is planned, it needs to run smoothly. Here we learn how professionals keep track of what’s important and communicate progress to stakeholders.

          • How to track projects and what to pay attention to
          • How to get real and honest answers when tracking
          • Observe and track a project’s progress and variances
          • Run an effective project status meeting
          • How to report clearly and concisely

          Module 2: Project Management: Risk Management, Uncovering Issues, and Closing

          In every project, things will go wrong. That’s why professional project managers learn and utilize techniques to reduce problems and get to the bottom of what’s going on. After the project is over, the project manager analyzes the project to facilitate continuous improvement.

          • Analyzing risk
          • Build plans to avoid problems or minimize their impact
          • How to figure out what’s going wrong when things “keep happening”
          • What to do when the final product is delivered
