Skill Level Beginner
The sample project used throughout this course is the relocation of Focused Fitness; a small exercise studio owned by a woman named Beth, who has six trainers who work as employees. Beth's goal for the relocation project is to move into a new space that will satisfy the needs of the business as it grows over the next five years. She has several additional objectives for the relocation. First, a more convenient location which will help the business grow. Second, easier and safer access for the clients who are recovering from injuries or are older and less agile.
Third, if possible, lower rent per square foot. To get the project started, Beth has asked you to help her manage the relocation. Let's get started and see how to manage a small project from start to finish.
