Introduction to Managing Projects

Course Code: BMGT-1021

Course Description

This introductory level short course in project management helps to prepare students with little-to-no formal project management training to run small, simple projects in their work environment. The emphasis is on introducing the terminology, and the basic tools & techniques for starting and running simple projects in a hands-on way, with an interactive, and engaging format of in-class exercises and practice using a custom workbook binder with step-by-step guidance (included with the course fee- no other textbooks required). No prior experience with managing projects is expected, so it is an excellent introduction to the subject for team leaders and participants who need to get started quickly. Students will leave the course with a model project that they helped to build, which can serve as a template for initiating and planning real-world projects in their environments. This course can be taught in 4 separate evening meetings, or in a 2-day morning/afternoon format. It is not a prerequisite for, but can serve as an introductory step to ACC’s professional certification program consisting of the deeper and wider 48-hour BMGT 1009 Applied Project Management or HITT 2026 Healthcare Implementation Project Management foundations courses (pick only one of these), followed by the 40-hour BMGT 1040 PMP/CAPM Exam Prep course to prepare students for PMI, CompTIA, and other professional certification exams.
