PD5: Project Management introduces students to the basic tools and techniques used to manage projects in a wide range of industries and workplaces. Project management extends far beyond using a calendar and writing a to-do list: planning, scheduling, budgeting, supervising, delegating, and prioritizing are all part of the process. Students who take PD5 leave the course with a better understanding of the many duties and issues that factor into effective project management.
