NICF - Project Management Fundamentals

What's In It For Me

  • Gain an introductory level knowledge of project management practices.
  • Work together with a certified Project Management Professional.
  • Start, build or advance their careers in project management.

Course Overview

Projects and Project Management works involve a team of people contributing their diverse individual expertise toward achieving a common objective or goal. As the goal of a project is the coordination of an organization’s resources and aggregate effort of its contributors, the success of a project lies largely on the ability of its team members to work together toward the common goal.

This programme is designed with the objective of presenting an introductory level knowledge of project management practices to non-project specialists to enable the learning of project management practices without the overwhelming jargons of a formal project management framework.
