Developed by a team of masterful project managers and adult instructors, Project Management 2020 delivers a balance of “core” project management knowledge and skills. These are blended with practical learning on key interpersonal skills essential to successfully achieving project goals.

PM 2020 is aligned with the most recent proposed Project Management Institute (PMI) body of knowledge (PMBOK), the most recognized approach to project management. As well, the program delves into the challenges every project manager faces such as managing stakeholders, defining the value of a project, dealing with conflict, and managing quality.

Over an intense, two-day course you experience a practical opportunity to bring your project into a workshop and learn how to increase your success, using professional templates while collaborating in a supportive environment.

Participants must commit to attending both days (November 30th and December 1st).

*This session is being offered in collaboration with Mitacs Training. Mitacs Training provides professional development training to advanced degree graduates, supplementing their education and research experience with the tools necessary to succeed in today’s workforce.
