This online course will look at a variety of tools that can be useful in building the pillars that are included in the DIRECT project leadership framework. Project management software, word processors and spreadsheets can all be used. This course does not cover Microsoft Project or Primavera, but it does include links to courses that do.
- As we go through this course we'll be looking at a variety of tools that you can use to build and strengthen each of the direct pillars of project leadership. Most of these tools are computer based but require only a basic proficiency with a word processor like Microsoft Word or a spreadsheet application like Microsoft Excel. A few of the tools that we'll look at may require a more robust piece of software like Microsoft Project or Primavera. Don't worry, you don't need to be an expert on these for the course.
Our goal here is to show you what the tools are and when you as a leader would want to use them. But I'll also give you links to other courses on this site where you can learn to use these tools if and when you need to.
