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 8 individual modules and covers the following aspects of Project Management:
