IT Project Management

Who Should Attend

Anyone who is about to sit for the PMP or CAPM exam and wants a final review, or anyone who plans to take the PMP or CAPM exam in the future and wants an overview of everything that they need to know.  Since Project Management and Information Technology are multidisciplinary in nature, this course can benefit a broad range of professionals from all backgrounds and disciplines including: Business, Architecture and Engineering, Management Information Systems, Information Technology, Software Engineering, and Finance.

Course Description

The IT projects we implement have grown exponentially in complexity, scale, scope, budget and risk.  Customers are more sophisticated and have a broad array of needs across numerous business processes, departments and value chains. This course would teach sound project management principles and techniques from a PMP prospective across the nine key knowledge areas (scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communication, risk, procurement and integration) while addressing what project managers need to understand about managing and leading projects in business today. The curriculum includes: best practices in navigating more complex organizations, diverse stakeholders’ requirements, and tighter delivery deadlines.

This is an intensive course covering all 9 Knowledge Areas of the PMP exam.  Students will also learn strategies for preparing for the exam and for answering exam questions.  A pre-test will be conducted in-class for each student to establish their own personal level of knowledge of IT Project Management.  This course would cover how to optimize IT problem solving and delivery processes so that projects can be delivered on time, on target and on budget. 

While the course will certainly prepare you for the comprehensive PMP exam with numerous exercises and practice questions, it has an IT flavor with significant real world emphasis on relevant examples and hands-on activities.

Note: NJIT does not schedule or conduct the certification tests this course prepares you for.  Please refer to the specific organizational website that issues the certification.
