Challenges in Project Management

This course examines the various challenges that more often than not arise within the project lifecycle and can threaten project success. The course also examines the reasons these challenges occur, when in the lifecycle they tend to happen, and solutions for anticipating, preventing, minimizing and/or mitigating them.

At the end of the course, students will be able to:
Assess the most common challenges likely to arise in the project life cycle.
Identify within the lifecycle of a typical project when certain challenges will most likely arise.
Develop an understanding of organizational issues that can impact projects, including contract and vendor issues, global and remote work environments, workforce layoffs, executive changes, company mergers and acquisitions.
Select the most appropriate strategies to anticipate, prevent, manage and resolve the identified challenges.
Develop and manage effective issue resolution plans.
Manage and utilize the full benefits of the lessons learned process to reduce issues in future projects.
