Course Overview

The use of projects and project management continues to grow in our society and its organizations. We are able to achieve goals through project organization that could be achieved only with the greatest of difficulty if organized in traditional ways. Though project management has existed since before the days of the great pyramids, it has enjoyed a surge of popularity beginning in the 1960s. A project put U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong on the moon. A project named “Desert Storm” freed the nation of Kuwait. An annual project brings us Girl Scout cookies as a sign that winter is just about finished. (They were a bit optimistic this year.) The use of project management to accomplish the many and diverse aims of society’s varied organizations continues to grow.

This Diploma course helps the learners help you develop a natural project management style, knowledge and skills to meet challenges faced by busy managers in today’s dynamic workplace. The course is based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide.
