An intensive program provides the practical knowledge and hands-on exercises needed to start and complete an AV project successfully.

Success as a Project Manager depends on understanding the competencies and structure of project management. Through discussion, facilitation and practical exercises, the nine areas of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK�Guide) are presented and a framework provided so that they can be integrated and applied during each phase of a project’s lifecycle.

Training focuses on how to integrate the PMBOK Guide knowledge areas into effective processes with which to establish priorities and proactively manage projects — an important task for Project Managers. The curriculum focuses on the project lifecycle phases, the corresponding project management processes, and the nine knowledge areas (below). Through utilization of AV case studies and scenarios you see how quality project management can improve your team communication and bottom line. Content is customized to address specific AV project management needs.

This course is available to be delivered upon request in both a two-day and a three-day format at your company site.
