About This Class

Welcome to the introduction and class 1 of the 'Project Management SIMPLIFIED' class modules.

In this class I introduce you to the basics of Project Management tasks which will need to be acted upon to ensure a smooth and successful Project implementation kick-off.

This first class outlines the steps to take in defining your project and to get a good grounding of what you need to do to build the outline of work involved. You will discover the importance of Cost, Time and Quality as well as how this will impact on your project.

The complete 'Project Management SIMPLIFIED' class consists of 12 individual modules and covers the following aspects of Project Management:

  1. Defining the Project
  2. Listing the tasks
  3. Estimating times and costs
  4. Finding the critical path
  5. Considering crashing or overlapping tasks
  6. Drawing a Gantt (Bar) chart
  7. Calculating resource requirements over time
  8. Assessing and mitigating risks

  9. Monitoring progress with the Gantt chart
  10. Monitoring cumulative costs
  11. Re-adjusting your plan
  12. Review

This class is designed to give you an insight to Project Management, so you will be able to understand the work involved. It will unfortunately not be able to turn you into a fully fledged Project Manager, which only experience will be able to do. Yet it will give you the best footing to kick-start your Project Management aspirations, either by managing projects in your freelancer career or getting involved in projects while working as an employee in a company.
