   There is widespread belief that Projects are so complex, risky and unfamiliar that they are bound to finish late, blow the budget and miss the desired outcome quality by a wide margin. Skilled Project Managers know better. They understand that issues of schedule, cost and quality arise directly from how the organization prepares and supports Projects, how Project Team Members work at their individual tasks and how they collaborate with others.

   Those Project Managers have learned how to develop and operate Projects that succeed.

   This course is based on the experiences and insights of such Project Managers -- exploring the methods they have worked out for effectively dealing with management, relationships, communication and control. While the profession of Project Management is never easy, Project Managers derive deep satisfaction from doing a difficult job well, and this course gives the specifics on how to do that.

   The workshop design combines descriptive text with discussions, analysis of cases and shared knowledge among the participants. Participation in the CMCC course Essentials of Project Management is helpful, but not required for experienced Project Managers to participate in Advanced Project Management.
