This introductory course is tailored to meet the needs of students who are new to project management, or who have not had formal project management training. Students will be introduced to the basic concepts of both the traditional Waterfall (plan driven) Project Management framework following Dave Barrett’s Understanding Project Management - A Practical Guide, as well as the Agile Project Management (change driven) frameworks following PMI’s® Agile Project Guide®. Students will be able to understand the benefits of both frameworks and compare the two, learning the practical application of each. After the successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to be introduced to more advanced concepts of project management for both Waterfall as well as Agile Project Management.
