MindEdge Launches Managing Real World Projects™

March 7, 2012

MindEdge has launched a self-paced online course, Managing Real World Projects™, that presents a stream-lined approach to project management based on the best practices of experienced, effective project managers. The course cuts through the clutter and focuses on the key principles of project management in the real world, offering tools and techniques for achieving project success.

Managing Real World Projects™ is intended for anyone who needs to lead or manage projects of any kind. It provides learners with a clear road map for leading a project through the five key project stages: Initiating, Planning, Controlling, Executing, and Closing. Learners are exposed to the basic tools employed in each of these stages, including templates for a comprehensive project plan, work breakdown schedules, task list, issue list, risk register, and close-out documents. Each stage is illustrated by examples and video commentary by project management professionals, where learners can see how best practices are applied to solve project challenges.

Taking advantage of online interactivity, the course utilizes vocabulary games, flashcards, and drag-and-drop activities to help learners master the material. Numerous quizzes and ten interactive real world case studies allow students to test their understanding of the content, along with a comprehensive course-ending exam. By submitting a question via the course's Ask the Expert link, learners can get access to project managers who will answer your questions within 24-48 hours.

Managing Real World Projects™ is offered on MindEdge Online and through selected training partners.

Learners who successfully complete the course can earn 1 Continuing Education Credit (CEU) recognized by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
