Organizational change happens when great ideas are adopted by engaged people, who are given the authority and resources to make the change happen. Most changes involve executing a series of tasks, and the management of that process is called Project Management.
This course explores the fundamentals of Project Management, from defining work, tasks and timelines in a medical practice setting to defining a project and setting up the project for management using ordinary office software.
Students completing this course will know:
- How to think of ideas as goals to be achieved
- How to devise the tasks needed to achieve the goal.
- How to place those tasks in a logical sequence (a Work Breakdown Structure)
- How to manage the execution of the tasks in a coordinated way using common office software.
It is a basic level course, designed to lay a foundation of concepts required for more advanced study as projects take on more complexity.
