Project Management is becoming an important skill for non-PMs as companies transition their models from Processes to Projects.
I work as a Business Analyst in Banking and here’s my curated list of great PM courses.
I believe that every research we do is a project. You can’t optimize the research itself with PM techniques. But you can definitely optimize the way you engage with colleagues be it Requirements Elicitation, Stakeholder Engagement, or Project Closure.
1. PMI (pmi .org) has 3 free courses on Project Management you can take online.
One of these courses was my first experience with Project Management and it was a great start.
Even though a course was a bit detached it will give you a basic understanding of the most important concepts and rules from which you can build.
You can enroll at pmi .org with your account for free.
But there are many other free courses worth taking.
2. HSC (oxfordhomestudy .com) offers courses:
3. On Udemy .com there are courses:
Project Management Templates Creation Course
Project Management: Manage Projects like a Professional
Project Management for Non-Project Managers.
4. At Edx .org I’d recommend courses:
Introduction to Project Management taught by the University of Adelaide
Applied Scrum for Agile Project Management from the University of Maryland.
5. At Coursera .org there are courses:
Project Management: The Basics for Success by the University of California
Fundamentals of Project Planning and Management by the University of Virginia.
Once you acquire a basic understanding of Project Management, you can dive deeper into tools and techniques Project Managers use.
Those can be Scrum/Agile, Waterwall planning, Stakeholder management techniques, etc. depending on the way you and your team work.
