Project Management Certification
The Kepner-Tregoe Project Management Process forms an important part of the Consulting and Six Sigma projects. Just prior to the beginning of the Consulting projects in November, all students complete intensive KT Project Management training. KT Project Management provides the process tool for managing your Consulting and Six Sigma Projects. You will also be encouraged to use the KT project management process tool in managing your job search strategy. After successfully completing the progress assessments that follow the workshop, you will receive a KT Certificate in Project Management, recognized by the Project Management Institute.
Project success is critical for managerial success. The KT Project Management Process provides practical, step-by-step methodologies that result in the successful management of projects, regardless of size or complexity. The KT Project Management Process guides your thinking to logically define, plan, and implement projects. This process provides a common language that helps you better communicate project needs, surface and resolve project issues, and manage the project. In addition to linking to the Kepner-Tregoe processes for problem solving and decision making, the Project Management workshop will also assist you to:
- Deliver projects that are complete, on time, and that achieve desired results.
- Develop project objectives, a work breakdown structure (WBS), and a responsibility assignment matrix (RAM).
- Establish project resource requirements.
- Develop project monitoring/control systems and project evaluation mechanisms. Complete project responsibility assignments, project cost estimates, and project plans.
- Monitor the project's progress.
- Assess each project situation, determine actions to take, and conduct project evaluations.
- Identify potential problems and make plans to prevent them.
- Identify potential opportunities and how to take advantage of them.
- Communicate effectively about project goals, assignments, plans, and progress. Negotiate timetables and resources.
- Facilitate group involvement in problem solving, decision making, and planning. Manage performance by setting expectations, monitoring performance, and providing feedback.
