What you'll learn in this project management training:

The profession of project management, specifically digital and web project management, has recently become one of the hottest jobs in the tech market.


Many growing organizations have come to recognize the need for project managers in the wake of expanding operations and project teams. It’s not uncommon for designers and developers to find themselves cast in the role of project manager, even if many of these responsibilities fall well outside their job description. This is also a good time to “break into” the profession of project management for folks who work in a capacity related to design or development.


Our course will focus specifically on the basics of project management for beginners; whether you’ve recently found yourself cast in the role of project manager by your company, or whether you’re looking to make a career transition.

We will cover everything from project planning, project management methodologies (Agile and Waterfall), running meetings, and the “soft skills” needed to successfully facilitate a project. We’ll also explore the major project management tools in the marketplace.


Takeaways:

  • Creating a project plan (requirements, scope, budget, resource allocation, timeline, risk factors)
  • Kicking off a project with clients, stakeholders, and your team by getting buy-off on timeline and scope
  • Facilitating the project (meeting deadlines, recognizing risk, prioritizing needs, mitigating conflicts, adjusting timelines
  • Honing the soft skills needed to navigate successful interpersonal relationships with clients and team members

Preparation

  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
  • This course will occur completely online using Zoom and Slack.
  • Course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course launches.

The wellbeing of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring the Coronavirus situation very carefully and will be adjusting delivery of our programs.

Due to the current health concerns in the greater San Francisco area, all GA short-form (one day) classes, workshops and bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.

Registered students will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and Slack messaging apps. Registration for this class will close 24 hours prior to class start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.


School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.
