Event Description:

This 2-day course begins by answering the question “what is project management” and defining its roles, history and dynamic industry profile. You’ll learn how to define the scope and goals of your project, how to create a schedule, draft a budget and integrate risk by anticipating what could go wrong.

Project Management Fundamentals is a great way to get your team on the same page, speaking the same language. This course will also focus on leadership components, such as communication excellence and the very essence of project management—knowing how to lead a team.

NOTE on Joining the SF Bay Area Chapter: Because of technical and procedural limitations you will not be able to register for the Project Management Fundamentals Course at the member rate on the same day that you join the PMI SF Bay Area Chapter. The reason for this is that joining a local PMI chapter is a function managed by PMI through their website. After joining the PMI SF Bay Area Chapter on the PMI website, it will take anywhere from one to three business days for PMI to process your new chapter membership. The PMI SF Bay Area Chapter database is automatically updated during a nightly download only after PMI has completed the processing of your new chapter membership. Please remember to provide adequate time to allow your chapter membership to process before registering for this course through the website.

There will be no adjustment to the fee charged for the Project Management Fundamentals Course if you become a PMI SF Bay Area Chapter member after you register for this Course.
