In addition to expanding your ability to plan, develop, and maintain a project timeline, you will learn techniques for analyzing, communicating, authorizing, and reporting on schedules as well as for taking corrective actions. Hands-on exercises, team projects, case studies, group discussions and critical analysis foster the transfer of learning to real projects back at work.
