Have you wondered how to make your small projects run as smoothly as possible—without building in so many steps that they get cumbersome? In this course, author and project manager Bonnie Biafore shows how a successful small project starts with planning: documenting goals, identifying risks, measuring success, and confirming decision makers. The course also covers organizing your files, estimating time and costs, building a solid team, scheduling work, and getting the project underway. In addition, you'll explore how to hand out and track assignments, communicate with the team, work through issues, and bring your project to a close. This course follows the relocation of a small business as the sample project, but the course's strategies apply to a wide variety of small projects, including those in marketing, business development, product development, software development, freelancing, and the like.
This course qualifies for 1.5 Category A professional development units (PDUs) through lynda.com, PMI Registered Education Provider #4101.
Hi! I'm Bonnie Biafore, and this is managing small projects. This course covers how to manage small projects effectively from beginning to end. We'll begin by examining the characteristics of small projects and looking at the lifecycle of managing them. Then I'll guide you through getting a project started, beginning with identifying the customer and the goal of the project, defining what the project will deliver, and how you'll know whether it's successful.
I'll provide tips for getting things done once the project work begins, and tracking where things stand as the work progresses, so the project stays on time and within budget. Finally, we'll go over the steps to perform at the end of a project to tie up loose ends and help you make your next project an even bigger success. Running a successful small project depends on the right tools applied in the right quantities. I'll introduce you to these tools and show you how to use them in Managing Small Projects.
