Great, practical resources that helped me slow down and expand on an existing project scope I was working on. Helped me learn the right language to describe to others what needs to happen throughout a project, as well as gave me great tools to use and reinforced some of the best practices I've already been utilizing.

Course Overview

Decision Making

Project Management

Learn a broad range of skills needed for successful project management, as well as tactics, tools, and strategies to help organizations execute projects that deliver value


When it comes to complex technology projects, the challenges of scope, budget, vendor relations, ROI, timelines, change management, and resources can be overwhelming obstacles to success. Nonprofits often have limited capacity to effectively manage technology projects.

Learn how you can overcome those obstacles and successfully take on complete complex projects. This course will help you ask the hard question that is critical to any project’s success: What problem are you solving?

Once you’ve established that a project is worth taking on, we’ll guide you through a sample project charter. The project charter is a guide to important questions to be addressed at the beginning of a project and serves as a reference point throughout. Finally, we’ll look at some of the tools and techniques you can use as a project manager to help with a well-conceived and planned project stay on course through completion.

Blended courses run for one week and offer a mix of self-paced and live events to offer both the flexibility you need with the personal connection you want.
