Advanced Project Management

Prerequisites: Effective Project Management and Implementing Project Management

Third Course in the Project Management Certificate Program

of the Professional Training and Development Program

of the University of Southern Maine

The first two courses in the USM Project Management Certificate Series are necessarily "broad-brush" treatments to introduce coordinated sets of practices for project management as a system, and for the challenge of implementing it in the workplace. A number of project managers, having worked with those practices, are interested in going deeper into the management of high-demand areas of the process. In Advanced Project Management, a three-day seminar-style course, participants share knowledge gained in employing practices of the first two courses and learn skills in:

  • managing project plan and process in the operations phase
  • team management and leadership
  • handling the challenging daily life of the Project Manager
