Advanced Project Management

Royal Roads University Professional and Continuing Studies
Advanced Project Management is a three-day course that enables project team members to deliver successful projects on time, on budget, and in scope. Participants will maximize their time in this course by having the option of working on components of their own project or on one of their team members’ projects. This course provides a review of project management from initial contemplation to successful implementation, while adding to participants’ understanding of the complexities added through risk, stakeholder management, change, and team development.
