Advanced Project Management

Prerequisites: Effective Project Management and Implementing Project Management

The first two courses in the USM Project Management Certificate Series are necessarily "broad-brush" treatments to introduce coordinated sets of practices for project management as a system, and for the challenge of implementing it in the workplace. A number of project managers, having worked with those practices, are interested in going deeper into the management of high-demand areas of the process. In Advanced Project Management, a three-day seminar-style course, participants share knowledge gained in employing practices of the first two courses and learn skills in:

  • managing project plan and process in the operations phase
  • team management and leadership
  • handling the challenging daily life of the Project Manager

Required courses must be taken in the sequence 1. Effective Project Management, 2. Implementing Project Management and 3. Advanced Project Management.
