Project management helps to ensure that mission-driven initiatives in higher education are well-planned and effectively managed to achieve their desired impact and outcomes. The difference between a well-executed and poorly-executed initiative can make all the difference in retaining faculty and staff, attracting students, generating new revenue or growing your unit’s impact within the community. This highly practical course will introduce you to a standardized project management methodology and teach you how to use several proven tools and templates, which you can begin using immediately to advance your highest priority initiatives. If you’re interested in learning how to define and manage the scope of work, engage meaningfully with your stakeholders and ensure the right work gets done, this course is for you.
