Applied Project Management

Course Code: BMGT-1009

Course Description

This 8-week intermediate level certificate course, taught by Bob Futrell and a team of PMP certified instructors, is a process-oriented, practical, foundational project management course emphasizing both knowledge and skill, for traditional or agile projects. It builds on the current edition of the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) and the accompanying Agile Practice Guide with examples and case exercises for both Initiating and Planning, plus Executing and Monitoring and Controlling a simulated project to Closure, to provide a solid framework and context for managing projects in team environments, and preparing the student for professional certifications in project management. This course provides an excellent foundation for students who already have some exposure to managing projects in any industry, or who would like to manage projects but may not have enough documentable work experience hours yet, or who are seeking to pass professional certification exams, but lack expertise and skill in all the knowledge areas covered in the current PMBOK Guide. It helps prepare students to earn and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP) and Certified Associate of Project Management (CAPM) certifications from the Project Management Institute (PMI), and the Project+ certification from CompTIA, which is based on PMI’s PMBOK Guide. This course uses generalized examples and background from various industries to explore how to apply the general concepts of project management in practice, in both traditional and agile environments, and is offered both onsite and online supported by BlackBoard, ACC’s online courseware environment. Suggested prerequisite: An introductory project management course (like BMGT 1021 Introduction to Managing Projects), or at least 12 months of awareness working around (not necessarily leading or working on) projects in an organization to understand the terms and context of project examples used. The follow-on course BMGT 1040 PMP/CAPM Exam Prep is strongly recommended prior to sitting for the certification exams. Students should see the specific professional certification examination requirements at www.pmi.org for PMP and CAPM, and www.CompTIA.org for Project+ for further details on professional certification.
