Project Management

Project Management is the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria at the specified time. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints, which is what Elevate teaches you in our series of Project Management seminars. 

Project Management Courses Offered

PMP Test Preparation

Elevate’s Project Management Professional Test Preparation program will provide attendees with the ability to create a roadmap for Project Management Professional certification. Participants will have a personal plan for PMP Test and the knowledge to apply these powerful techniques to projects assigned to them. Each participant leaves the program with a personalized Action Plan to obtain Project Management Professional (PMP) certification and the 35 PDUs required to sit for the PMI/PMP exam. The program will include a copy of the PMBOK, a test workbook, PMP exam sample questions, and additional online resources.

Critical Thinking & Creative Problem Solving

Creative Problem Solving and Strategic thinking is the only way to ensure that your organization is seeing all of its possibilities. Being “stuck in the same rut” can be more harmful than some might expect. In this course, Elevate instructors will take participants on an interactive journey that will lead to more effective decision making, problem analysis and thought processing. The ability to do these successfully will give each participant the confidence they need in any situation.

Basic Tools for Process Improvement

A series of actions used to identify, analyze, and improve existing processes within an organization to meet new goals and objectives. These actions follow a specific methodology and strategy to create successful results. The program gives individuals and teams an understanding of basic process improvement and includes a 14-step guide for process improvement, and the forms and tools needed to implement a process improvement program.

Managing Scope, Schedule, and Cost

Project management isn’t just for construction engineers and military logistics experts anymore. Today, in addition to the regular duties of your job, you are often expected to take on extra assignments, and to get that additional job done well, done under budget, and done on time. This three-day workshop is not intended to take you from a supervisory or administrative position to that of a project manager. However, these topics will familiarize you with the most common terms and practices in terms of working on projects.

Project Management (I-III)

All leaders want their projects to be well-executed, on time, and on budget. There is a true art (and science) to project management, and in Elevate’s multi-level Project Management Series, participants will build on each step of Project Management, from the birth of a project, to understanding the constraints within which a project must be managed throughout the projects life-cycle. Without the core of effective management, a project can be crippled in the preparation and implementation. Level one of this course will strengthen participant knowledge of common project management tools, critical evaluation, and a proven project management framework, with levels 2 & 3, digging deeper into Project Management, giving particiapants the ability to more effectively diagnose constraints and risk factors, create solutions with logical processes, avoid common mistakes, and employ tools for effective job management. Participants will learn the advanced steps to demystify the processes of project management. Participants will build upon existing tools and information to ensure successful project completion.
