Effective project management requires careful planning and strategizing from the very beginning. However, this kind of work relies on essential project origination knowledge and skills to anticipate problems before they arise. Our Project Origination, Planning and Defining Scope course offers the training needed to plan your projects for success.

Upon completion, you will understand the entire planning process and best practices for how to originate projects for success, how to start a stakeholder register, and how to develop a project charter and assumption log.
