This course is designed to provide MSP2010 application knowledge and skills required to complement theoretical and conceptual knowledge in Project Management. Candidates who have had previous exposure to project management theory will find tremendous benefits in the ability to plan, control, evaluate and communicate project management information using a structured set of tools. The programme scope covers both stand-alone and enterprise-wide applications. This is a must-have for anyone seeking any form of meaningful participation in a project management environment.
Project management literacy is perceived by many organisations today as the third and compulsory level of literacy, after basic literacy and computer literacy. Therefore, anybody who is serious about personal and career growth will, at some stage, find the need to acquire formal project management knowledge and skills. It is a decision that should be made sooner rather than later. Your training partner may just be the difference in expediting this dream.
Some knowledge of project management theory is recommended
