  • Explain the fundamentals of effective project delivery, Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA,) to better plan projects.
  • Summarize start-up tools to effectively start a predictive or agile project.
  • Develop a vision statement and project charter to effectively initiate a project.
  • Describe end-to-end requirements planning, artifacts, management, and roles to effectively plan project scope.
  • Distinguish the differences between requirements management in both a predictive and adaptive environment to effectively plan scope.
  • Describe techniques to effectively elicit and validate requirements to ensure you are solving the situation or condition from the customer standpoint.
  • Analyze requirements and develop overall project scope to reach a collaborated and agreed-upon scope baseline.
  • Practice writing user stories and creating a Product Backlog to support and plan an adaptive project.

  • Summarize steps to complete deliverables to provide customer value.

Course 2. Project Scheduling

  • Explore how scheduling tools may be used to develop and manage a schedule.
  • Compare and contrast the differences between adaptive and predictive scheduling approaches to ensure a viable schedule.
  • Explore the relationship between the project baseline and predictive schedule development to reach the schedule baseline.
  • Use a predictive approach to develop a schedule baseline to share with sponsors and stakeholders to gain approval and acceptance.
  • Describe the relationship between user stories, tasks, and sprint planning to better understand adaptive planning techniques.
  • Use an adaptive approach to develop a task board for a case to share project status and monitor progress.
  • Describe schedule optimization techniques to ensure resources are available and aligned.

Course 3. Project Delivery

Course Description

The project management certificate is divided into three parts. Part one bundles three courses that target skills and techniques for creating and executing a project. The focus is on project scope, approach, responsibilities and schedule.

The first course, Project Requirements and Scope Management, will introduce students to project management and identify and practice key tools and techniques used to initiate a project. Students will learn to determine the optimal framework to implement a project and identify end-to-end requirements planning, artifacts, management and roles to effectively plan project scope. Students will explore the key elicitation and analysis techniques to plan a predictive project and an adaptive project and the methods to ensure value is identified in both environments.

In the second course, Project Scheduling, students will survey methodologies to gain project approval and acceptance using both predictive and adaptive approaches,. In addition, students will explore scheduling tools available to develop and manage schedules. Adaptive planning techniques and skills will be developed to share project status and monitor progress.

In the third course, Project Delivery, students begin to explore Earned Value management to analyze scenarios. Identifying key goals and objects, students will apply concepts to define the value of a project and develop a Responsibility Assignment Matrix to define key activity roles and responsibilities. Effective planning that ensures all key actions are met when closing out a project will be analyzed.
