Welcome

- Hi, I'm Bonnie Biafore and this is Project Management Fundamentals. This course teaches you how to manage your projects more effectively from beginning to end. We'll begin by taking a closer look at the general concepts of project management. I'll then take you through to finding a project starting with identifying the problem to solve and how you're going to solve it. Next, we'll discuss planning your project.

Finally, I'll provide tips for launching your project and monitoring and controlling its performance so that you stay on time and within budget.
