Managing Real World Projects
Estimated length: 10 hours 1 CEUs | 10 (ISC)2 CPEs | 10 PDUs
This course presents a streamlined approach to project management based on the best practices of experienced, effective project managers. It cuts through the clutter and focuses on the key principles of project management in the real world, offering tools and techniques for achieving project success. This course provides a clear road map for leading a project through the five key project stages: Initiating, Planning, Controlling, Executing and Closing. You’ll be exposed to the basic tools employed in each of these stages, including templates for a comprehensive project plan, work breakdown schedules, task list, issue list, risk register and close-out documents. Each stage is illustrated by examples and video commentary by project management professionals, where you can see how best practices are applied to solve project challenges.

Effectively Managing Project Stakeholders
Estimated length: 3 hours .3 CEUs | 5 (ISC)2 CPEs | 3 PDUs
This online course is created to help project managers understand and resolve issues that can emerge from interactions among project stakeholders. The course contains ten concise case studies that explore common stakeholder issues. The case studies are designed to simulate the conversations and interactions that occur among project stakeholders, to show learners how to dissect causal elements from these types of conversations—just as they will have to do on their own projects—and to help them prepare appropriate responses. As students work through the case studies, they’ll learn effective strategies to resolve stakeholder problems and gain the proficiency necessary to manage interactions and keep their projects on track.

PM Primer: Conflict Resolution
Estimated length: 2 hours 2 PDUs
This online course focuses on how project managers can resolve conflicts in a project setting. Any time you convene a group of people to work together as closely as project teams do, conflicts are bound to happen. Project team members will likely have different views, personalities, and work styles that may clash as project objectives and goals are pursued. To ensure that projects achieve their goals and project teams reach their full potential, conflicts must be carefully managed and effectively resolved by skilled practitioners and key stakeholders. Project managers and team leaders must recognize the triggers that signal conflict and intervene as early as possible, to prevent problems from shifting focus away from work and to ensure that project participants interact
professionally as they meet their responsibilities and execute their roles.

PM Primer: Cognitive Ability and Decisiveness
Estimated length: 2 hours 2 PDUs
This online course focuses on those critical thinking, decision-making, and cognitive skills vital to effective project management. To be effective, project practitioners need to do more than just apply tools and techniques. They need to think critically about their projects and make good decisions that will put themselves—and their teammates—in positions to succeed.  Mastering these “softer” skills will allow team members and key project contributors to diagnose problems and situations in ways that will benefit the project, which will then propel them toward more successful outcomes. As they apply effective cognitive ability and decisionmaking skills, participants will make efficient choices that will help in dealing with uncertainties and align work with expectations to lead the group to a successful result.
