Project Management for Executives



6 PDUs

Project governance focuses on making sure the project management systems are effectively supporting the organization’s mandate and strategies. Simply put, project governance refers to the decision-making structures, checkpoints, roles and associated responsibilities that direct the oversight of projects in an organization. The right projects are initiated at the right time, while the risks to a project and to the organization are actively minimized.

This course provides participants with an understanding of the framework for project oversight, the means to determine what parts of the existing governance structure requires strengthening, and, in many cases, the tools to do so. We follow 8 key steps and explore the impact of each as well as the “how to.” The primary focus is on enabling the project executive to perform the role of oversight and ensure that the project produces the intended results.

No prerequisites

This course can provide up to 6 PDUs / contact hours towards attaining or maintaining the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation. Participants must submit the request to PMI via the Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS).
