Students: 11657, Price:  Paid

The Project Management Professional Certification Course (PMI-PMP*) includes a number of 28 sections that ensure you  a minimum of 40 PDU's, from video lectures, quizzes, exercises and projects, for your Project Management Institute (PMI) Certification Exams covering the most relevant information in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK6) developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

*Project Management Professional (PMP)® is is the gold standard of project management certification. Recognized and demanded by organizations worldwide, the PMP validates your competence to perform in the role of a project manager, leading and directing projects and teams.

1. Project Initiation and Planning. Projects are complex undertakings that require a high degree of coordination from start to finish. A lot goes into planning, getting the work done, monitoring progress, and finally, closing the project. In this course, you'll learn what project integration management involves and why it's important. Once you have an understanding of what's needed to manage project integration, you'll learn about the first two processes. These are what you use to create a project charter and develop a project management plan.

2. Managing Project Work. Most projects aren't lucky enough to enjoy smooth sailing from beginning to end. Unforeseen events and difficulties usually crop up somewhere along the line. And these can steer a project off course. But don't worry, in this course, you'll learn how to direct and manage the work of a project. In addition, this course will show you how to monitor and control project work, to ensure work performance is in line with requirements. And how to leverage knowledge throughout the life cycle of the project.

3. Project Changes and Closing. It happens every time. Your customer or team members come up with great ideas during a project of how the product could be so much better if. But that can be a sure recipe for disaster. This course teaches you how to apply the perform integrated change control process. It also explains the closed project or phase process. Guiding you how to ensure product acceptance, tie up loose ends, and assess the project's success.

4. Capturing, Analyzing, and Using Project Lessons Learned. Every project comes with its own unique challenges. There is valuable learning that takes place as project team members solve problems and persevere through challenges to meet their objectives. Lessons learned can serve a dual purpose. In this course, you'll learn about the basic steps involved in collecting, analyzing, and passing on lessons learned, so that organizations are able to grow and experience superior performance.

5. Strategically Focused Project Management. As a project manager, your role is to ensure that each project starts out and remains in line with the company's strategic goals and delivers expected value. In this course, you'll learn about how to achieve that on your project from the creation of a project charter through closing the project. We'll also discuss how to manage stakeholder relationships, with the goal of keeping their expectations in line with strategic goals.

6. Plan and Define Project Scope. So your project is all approved, and you're ready to get started. What's the first step? You need to figure out exactly what the end result is going to look like based on the customer's needs. In this course, you'll learn how to plan scope management for your project, use the collect requirements process to gather and refine stakeholders' requirements. And then how to turn those into your scope statement with the defined scope process.

7. Create Work Breakdown Structure. This course focuses on a single process, the Create Work Breakdown Structure Process, or create WBS, as it's called in the PMBOK® Guide. We're going to talk about the role the WBS plays in planning, and how it's used in control and reporting. You'll learn about the important activities involved in decomposition to break down project requirements and deliverables in order to create a WBS. You'll also learn about an important output of the Create WBS process, the scope baseline.

8. Validate and Control Scope. There are three priorities you'll have as project manager. To make sure your projects meets stakeholder expectations and to make sure the project comes in on time and on budget. In this course you'll learn about two processes that help you meet those obligations, validate scope and control scope. In validate scope, you formalize acceptance of the scope by all parties. And in control scope you manage changes to the scope baseline. Both of these processes are critical to project success.

9. Define and Sequence Activities. Okay, it's time to talk schedule. After all, what project can run without a proper schedule, right? This course covers two key activities that you need to do when creating a schedule. The first is to identify the activities that will need to take place during the project. And the second is putting all those activities into a logical sequence that helps you create a schedule network diagram, which is the foundation of your schedule.

10. Develop the Project Schedule. In order to plan a schedule for anything, from a birthday party to a mission to Mars, you need to make an educated guess of how long the work is going to take, and then figure out the overall schedule. A huge part of your job as a project manager is to see that all the work happens at the right time. If it doesn't, delays in one area can cause a domino effect that cascades through the remainder of the project. In this course, you're going to learn how to estimate activity durations for your project, and how to develop the project schedule using those estimates.

11. Control the Project Schedule. It's essential in successful project management to be able to monitor activities to discover and correct any schedule variances, evaluate the effective schedule changes on all project activities, and make adjustments as required to minimize risk on your project schedule. In this course, you're going to learn how to apply useful techniques to control the project schedule to keep your project on track.

12. Creating a Project Budget. Let's face it, at the end of the day, projects are really all about profit, no matter what kind of company you work for. Even if you work for a charitable organization or government, nobody wants to see a project lose money. That's why developing a realistic budget and then managing it well is such a critical part of project management. In this course, you'll learn what goes into a cost management plan, how to estimate costs, and how to establish a realistic cost baseline for your project.

13. Keeping Your Project on Budget. Establishing the budget for a project is a vital process in project management. Yet, it means nothing if the budget is not adhered to. Controlling project cost is critical to meeting a project's budgeted targets. And monitoring cost performance can mean the difference between the success and failure of a project. In this course, you'll learn about the control cost process. Including helpful techniques you can use to keep your project on budget.

14. Planning Quality Management. In today's competitive world, customer satisfaction is paramount. It's so important that meeting customer expectations is how we define quality. So the quality of a product isn't about being 100% defect free or whether you think it's perfect. It's about whether the customer will be happy with it as it is. In this course, you'll learn about the project quality management knowledge area and the plan quality management process.

15. Manage and Control Quality. A critical aspect of managing any project is managing the quality of processes and deliverables. Ultimately, a project will fail if it doesn't meet quality requirements. In this course, you'll learn how the manage quality process and the control quality process work together to help ensure that a project achieves the best possible levels of quality. Both in how work as carried out and in the end result.

16. Quality Methodologies and Standards for Project Management. Consistently providing high-quality products and services requires use of continuous process improvement initiatives and adherence to applicable industry standards. This course explains some of the most popular quality methodologies and standards that project management professionals use today. We'll look at lean and six sigma, as well as some of the specific lean tools that are used for quality management and continuous improvement. We'll also look at four different classes of quality standards, including the ISO standard.

17. Plan and Acquire Resources. Unless you plan to do all the work on your project yourself, you're going to need to put a team together. That's not as easy as it sounds. You have to have people with the right mix of skills and expertise to make up a high- performing team. You'll also need to be able to identify and acquire all the resources you'll need for project success. In this course, you'll learn how to develop a resource management plan. In this course, you'll learn how to develop a resource management plan. You'll also learn best practices for estimating and acquiring necessary resources, developing and managing the project team, and optimizing resources throughout the project.

18. Develop and Manage Resources. Ask anyone who has worked in a project environment and they will tell you that team dynamics can make or break a project. A positive, constructive atmosphere can keep team members motivated and productive, while a negative atmosphere can have the opposite effect. Developing and managing effective teams is one of the primary responsibilities of a project manager. And controlling resources throughout the project lifecycle ensures that everything stays on track. In this course, we'll explore the develop team, manage team, and control resources project management processes.

19. Plan and Manage Communications. Regardless of the nature of your project, you're a bridge builder. That's your job as a project manager. To build bridges between all of the stakeholders, both inside and outside your company. And communication is how you do it. It's what you'll use to keep everyone informed, engaged, and all pulling in the same direction. In this course, you'll learn how to create a communications management plan. And then how to manage the flow of information in accordance with the plan.

20. Monitor Project Communications. Sometimes on projects, things don't go according to the communications management plan. Stakeholders' information needs might change or your team members find a better way to use technology to communicate with each other. Or maybe someone drops the ball and keeps forgetting to send you important status updates. It's your job to monitor the flow of information and determine whether the plan needs to change or whether people's actions need to change, so they comply with the planned approach for project communications.

21. Planning Risk Management. We face many risks during our lifetimes. Some people try to avoid risk by avoiding risky situations. For example, people who don't fly because they're scared the plane will crash. Most of us realize that if we dare to act wisely and take calculated risks, the rewards can outweigh the chance of negative consequences. Sure, airline accidents do rarely happen. But that beach in the Caribbean sure is nice in February. This is the first course in the series of courses on the project risk management knowledge area. We're going to learn about how to plan for risks on a project to make sure that when negative things do happen, we're ready for them.

22. Identifying Risk. When it comes to risk management, knowing what the risks are is half the battle. Once you know what is likely to go wrong, you can prepare yourself and protect your project from the effects of adverse events. That's what the identify risks process is all about. In this course, you're going to learn what inputs you need to look at in order to identify risks. And how to use several techniques, such as Data Analysis methods, like SWOT Analysis, and Assumption, and Constraint Analysis, to help you develop an effective risk register.

23. Analyzing Risk. All projects face a number of risks. There are uncertainties. You can't know whether certain events will actually occur or exactly what impact they'll have on the project. However, you can analyze project risks in terms of their possible impacts and probabilities. In this course, we'll examine the two risk analysis processes of the project risk management knowledge area, namely, perform qualitative risk analysis and perform quantitative risk analysis.

24. Responding to Risk. Any project, big or small, faces risks. The way you manage these can determine whether the project makes or loses money. Successful risk management involves anticipating risks, preventing them where possible and planning how to deal with risks you can't prevent. This course covers the final three processes in the project risk management knowledge area. Plan risk responses, implement risk responses and monitor risks. You'll learn about some common risk response strategies and how to monitor and control risks as they occur.

25. Procurement Planning. Procurement management may not be the most flashy of all the project management knowledge areas, but it's still pretty important. Procurement is all about obtaining the goods and services that you'll need for your project. From purchasing raw materials, to contracting out specialties services you need to make sure the goods you buy are good quality. That they arrive when you need them. And that you maintain good relationships with your suppliers. In this course, we're going to look at the plan procurement management process.

26. Procurement Management. Project success doesn't depend just on how well the project team performs, it also depends on the reliable delivery of required materials, products and services from external sources. This is where the procurement management processes come in. In this course, you will learn all aspects of managing the procurement of contracted goods and services. From choosing suitable vendors and managing relationships with sellers, to monitoring procurement activities, and making changes and corrections when necessary.

27. Planning Stakeholder Engagement. You'll likely manage many different types of projects during your career as a project manager, small ones, big ones, simple or complex. Regardless of the project, this one truth remains constant. Project success largely depends on a good working relationship between you and all the other stakeholders. This is the first course covering the processes in the project stakeholder management knowledge area. In this course, you're going to learn how to determine who your stakeholders are, and everything you need to know about them. We'll also talk about how to plan effective stakeholder engagement approaches for your project.

28. Managing Stakeholder Engagement. There are few project managers who aren't familiar with the concept of financial value. In fact, the main purpose of business is the accumulation of value in the form of money, goods, or other tangible assets. But some project managers aren't as familiar with the intangible value of relationships. Knowledge, access to information, connections, and goodwill. The process of developing and maintaining effective stakeholder relationships is called engagement. In this course, we cover manage stakeholder engagement and monitor stakeholder engagement, which are the third and fourth processes in the project stakeholder management knowledge area.

Students: 9709, Price:  Paid

The  course on Management of Quality is part of the Operations Management Training Program which includes a number of eight sections also presented as individual courses for your convenience.

Quality is an essential ingredient for any successful company. A company with quality products and services takes the time to get to know its customers and their expectations. When a company stops being committed to quality, it starts losing customers. In order to meet customers' expectations, a company must make quality a key concern at every stage of operations. From production to delivery and beyond, everyone in the company must be committed to the pursuit of quality.

Quality is a complex term. It can refer to how well a product or service meets a company's own quality standards. Or it can refer to how well a company's product or service satisfies its customers. If its customers are unhappy, a company will find it difficult to survive in the marketplace. For a quality management strategy to succeed, a company's quality standards must be aligned with its customers' quality expectations.

There are many different quality management strategies, and these can vary from organization to organization. Some quality management concepts and practices have been simplified in this course, for training purposes. Products and services are usually associated with manufacturing and service industries respectively. However, in this course, the term "product" is often used to represent "services" as well, to avoid redundancy.

Quality is crucial to manufacturing and service industries. All organizations need to set quality performance metrics and measure the performance of their products, services, and processes on an ongoing basis. Quality management has evolved over many years. It's based on a number of key principles, which stress the vital role of suppliers, organization leaders, and customers in any quality initiative.

When implementing a quality management strategy, companies can use many tools, including the transformation model and Lean Six Sigma. All these tools have the same ultimate goal – delivering quality to the customer.

This course covers many quality management principles, techniques, and tools that can be applied in service or manufacturing organizations. All employees must understand and be committed to the organization's quality management strategy. By preparing for excellence, monitoring quality, and continuously improving, an organization can become a quality leader.

  1. Agile Project Management Essentials

  2. Adopting an Agile Approach

  3. The Scrum Development Process

  4. Project Initiating and Requirements Gathering

  5. Planning and Monitoring Iterations

  6. Leading an Agile Team

  7. Managing Stakeholder Engagement

  8. Value and Quality in Agile Projects

Section I - Agile Project Management Essentials

And, the first one will be on what is called The Agile Approach. After completing this part, you will be able to: understand the characteristics of agile project management, and why is this important; distinguish between primary and secondary agile value s, and how this might help you in your work; recognize and apply agile principles in your projects; recognize and use the differences between defined and empirical methodologies; and compare the agile triangle of constraints with that of traditional project management. 

The second part of the course will help you understand better the various Agile Models and Methodologies. After completing this part, you will be able to: compare the phases of traditional project management with those of the agile framework, and understand the differences; understand how a project manager's responsibilities will change on an agile project compared with a traditional project; and distinguish between common agile methodologies.

Section 2 - Adopting an Agile Approach

And, it answers to an important question. Would you like to adopt a more agile approach to project management in your company, only you think the change would be too disruptive? Perhaps you believe that Agile is all or nothing, but that's not true. Wise project leaders are able to examine their own situations and determine which agile practices to adopt given the nature of their projects, organizations, and teams.

Guidance on how to take steps towards adopting an agile project management approach for those who currently use a traditional, plan-driven methodology is included. The relevant section discusses some common myths and misconceptions about agile development approaches, identifies factors to consider when deciding whether to adopt agile practices, and explains the general agile practices that a company may want to adopt.   

The course provides project leaders with general guidelines on how to develop an agile way of thinking, one of the first steps in transitioning a team. The course also looks at some guidelines for obtaining buy-in from organizational stakeholders so they also embrace agile practices.

Section 3  - The Scrum Development Process

Scrum is one of the most popular agile methodologies to date, with tools and techniques applicable to more than just software development projects. This course will assist prospective Scrum masters, product owners, and team members with the understanding of core Scrum practices. This includes an outline of the roles and responsibilities of members of the Scrum team, the importance of good communication, and the role of project stakeholders.

The course divides the Scrum development process into three major phases: pre-game, game, and post-game. It describes the activities performed in each phase, but particularly examines the activities and tools of the game phase. Scrum basics covered include the use of product and sprint backlogs, the use of iterative development in the form of sprints, performing daily stand-up meetings, the use of sprint reviews and retrospectives, and using Scrum task boards and burn-down charts for monitoring and reporting project progress.

Section 4 Project Initiating and Requirements Gathering

It provides a look at the agile approach to planning and tasks that agile teams have adopted from methodologies such as Scrum and XP. The focus is on release planning which is the first of three agile planning levels. It emphasizes the importance of a properly established product vision, developed by the product owner and stakeholders prior to developing the project backlog.

During release planning, this product vision is shared with the development team and discussed in detail to ensure the proper requirements, conditions of satisfaction, and priorities are established. The course then moves into the requirements gathering and analysis phase, with the use of high-level user case scenarios. It finishes with instruction and practice on developing user stories, which have become the choice method for many agile teams for clearly defining customer-centric requirements or features.   

Section 5 Planning and Monitoring Iterations

This course focuses on the activities performed during the planning and execution of a project iteration, or sprint. During release planning - the previous phase in the overall agile planning process - the team creates an ordered list of project features in the form of the product backlog. Iteration planning is the process of creating an iteration (sprint) backlog that contains more specific detail regarding work items that have been assigned to the upcoming iteration.

An important section of the course will follow the iteration planning process and the creation of the iteration backlog. It also explores how to create a schedule and use principles of buffering. The last part of the course covers key tools and methods used by agile teams to monitor and report project progress, both at the iteration level and at the overall project or release level.

Section 6 Leading an Agile Team

And, having a good team and quality leadership is key for the success of any project, but in Agile development it is crucial. This course takes a close look at agile teams and team leadership, including the unique skills and roles of the agile project leader and the characteristics of the team as a whole.

Course Introduction:

Computers have become an integral part of our daily life. The Management Information Systems course explains the benefits of computers to organisations, how the work of an organisation is affected by computers and how you can deploy and manage them to support your organisation’s goals and strategies.

Why Learn MIS?

Computers, in all forms, have become an integral part of our daily life. Some estimates say that by the end of 2015, there will be more Indians carrying smartphones in their pockets than there are Americans doing so! Computers may not appear essential for everyone but today, the lives of each and every person are affected—and often benefited – by their use and deployment. Governments, corporations and other organisations cannot operate efficiently and effectively without them. Some businesses, such as Amazon and Flipkart, run almost entirely on computer systems. In other cases, the use of computers by organisations, such as banks, ensure better services to customers.

The Management Information Systems course will help you understand the benefits of computers to organisations and, more importantly, how to deploy and manage them to support an organisation’s goals and strategies. No matter which function of an organisation you work in—finance, marketing, human resources or production—you will need to understand how your work is affected by and how you may effectively deploy computer systems.

Program managers have become ubiquitous at many tech companies and are quickly growing in more conventional industries and verticals as well. They drive progress across organizations, operate cross-functionally with different teams, and pivot on a dime to adapt to quickly changing market conditions and customer-centric needs. They also transcend beyond your typical project manager and come with domain expertise, design, and product sense.

I made this course for those looking to land a role as a program manager, both technical and non-technical. By the end of the course, you will have a high-level understanding of the program manager role and be sufficiently prepared to interview for program manager roles at various tech companies.

The ideal student for this course is someone who is hoping to land a role as a program manager or preparing to switch roles and wants a structured method to prepare for the interview process.

One topic, Two courses - A two speed risk management course.

  • The fast-track is under 30 minutes of step-by-step WHAT to do
    The videos and Workbook-manual guide you through what's needed at work to Manage, Lead or Oversee and Facilitate risk in your projects, programs and portfolios.

  • The Master-class is 13hours of detailed HOW-to using the same Workbook and slides as the Fast-Track
    Dip into the Masterclass videos only where you feel you need or want more guidance than the fast-track gives.

*IF* you also want to take PMI or AXELOS/PeopleCert exams then use the two 'exam conversion' modules to understand what exam specific vocabularies and process models are overlaid on real-world risk management.

~~"~~

These two courses are for Project (and Program or Portfolio) managers and PMO Analysts, Scrum Masters, Team Subject Matter experts and Project Sponsors and Product Owners who need competency in how to handle risk.

Learn a step by step framework of WHAT to do grounded in "Projects are delivered by people (so most of the arithmetic theory isn't too useful)". Plus here are the techniques, tips, tools and hints per step to give solid How-to that includes the adjustments required to work across the typical mixture of teams using Agile and Predictive product development ways of working.

  • The master class covers it all.

  • The Fast-Track is just the structured what to do - suitable if you've already got some idea of how to lead workshops and define risk scales (etc).

Your ideal situation would be that your starting a project and feel some guidance on "how to really do risk" from day one with the sponsor through every day with the team to last day and risk handover. Ideal because the WorkBook's guidance is written as exercises to be applied to your current project to create real governance documents. If you've not got a current project then I've provided a scenario based on a fictionalised combination of some of my past projects.

I've practiced projects as PM and PMO lead for 30 years and taught other people's risk courses on and off over the last 20. Those course from the big global training companies have always needed a big dose of reality which is what I've built into this course.

The result is a course unlike any other I know of because it doesn't treat the world as 'text-book'. In fact I've recorded it because I think big training company courses and project risk textbooks and chapters (in the PRINCE2 guide and the PMBoK-Guide) are fit more for exams than reality. Since the course is IMHO reality I've included two 'exam conversion modules' for those who DO want to take the exams.

I'm expert enough to be unsure what a risk is (!) but I know its not 'A Single and instantaneous event-based-cause that leads to A Single quantifiable consequence for A Single stakeholder'. That is too naive. Too simple for the world I work in and for the one you're in too. I know that identification is key to all that follows. I'll share with you how to define responses (they are what actually matter!) so defining "A" risk isn't so important when we know our set of valid responses (plural).

I'll start you off with what does running each workshop of each step look and feel like. In the Master-Class I'll give your a slew of tools to use and I'll suggest how to apply to your own project, how to build responses into the baseline - because we only have one set of people to deliver the project and handle the risk. I'll cover how reporting of project status integrates risk management.

[ Of course after investing your effort you'll probably appreciate a way to demonstrate the results so I've also been mindful to giving you real world skills that substantially support efforts to gain CAPM®/ PMP®/ IMPA-abcd/ PRINCE2agile® and PRINCE2® exam/ RMP/ MoR etc. The course includes the supplements for translating to exam needs.

University Operations: Online Program Launch & Management

An intro to creating and delivering your best online student experience, from prospect to graduate

Created by Nancy Governor - online operations management and process design (higher ed)

"]

Students: 6, Price: $34.99

Students: 6, Price:  Paid

Do you work for a university that's planning to develop and deliver online programs? 

Have you and an "online task force" developed a 30 page strategy document that, while it was a lot of work with a lot of smart people, still gives you no idea where to start and what you're actually building? 

Do you have any idea what the online student experience looks like from prospect to grad? Is it the same as your campus experience? How different is it? 

How do we organize ourselves, our various teams, and create and manage a plan that gets us beyond strategy into coordinated delivery? 

Do you wonder: should we do it all ourselves or partner with an OPM (Online Program Management provider)? 

It can be completely overwhelming, especially if you're starting from scratch, but you don’t have to. 

You Can Start With My Online Operations Course!

You’ll find many courses on instructional design and course development, which is, of course, an important component of a university’s plan to offer online courses and programs. However, it is just one component.  If you work for a university or you’ve been a student, you’re familiar with the other important components: admissions, bursar, registrar, student support, to name a few. This isn’t a course specifically about any one them, either (though future courses may be).

So, what this course actually is is an introduction to how to tactically, operationally, pull all these components and teams together so that you can create and deliver your best online student experience, from prospect to graduate. It's a very practical approach and I provide starter templates to help you get going.

Talking Trees University’s Journey  

Talking Trees University is a fictitious university I created to illustrate how to apply some of my methods and use the starter templates. TTU is currently in the process of figuring out how to plan and launch its president's online programs initiative. In each section, you'll follow TTU's progress as it applies each lesson to successfully launch its online operation. 

You'll learn: 

  • how to create and use the integrated online student lifecycle model - beyond the courses, what does the rest of the online student lifecycle look like, what does the student go through to finally get into the first course and how does each of the operational teams fit and depend on each other to help that happen?
  • how to integrate process & technology - why and how should you create a high-level student process diagram that illustrates the student experience and incorporates your operations teams, technology and potential service providers? 
  • how to create program launch milestones - what should your basic launch plan look like, what are the major milestones: what are the core activities that must happen in order for your students to successfully progress from prospect to participating (and paying) students in the first week of class?
  • how to determine the right "partner" model - in the world of edtech OPMs and service providers, do you need a partner to "do everything" or a service provider who provides expertise in a few key areas you can integrate into your operation? It's not one size fits all.
