....to launch new online Project Management course available on FutureLearn.com
APM (Association for Project Management) has partnered with The Open University (OU), the largest academic institution in the UK and world leader in flexible distance learning, to launch a free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
The course, titled Project Management: Beyond the Basics, is available via the online learning platform FutureLearn.com from 13 January 2020. It is aimed at people already working on or leading projects in their work, but who may not have previously considered themselves as professional project managers. The course also offers the opportunity for people to explore project management as a career.
Studied over four weeks, the course goes beyond the fundamentals of project management and improves learners’ knowledge and skills so they can better lead projects in the future. Topics covered include identifying and evaluating stakeholders, choosing the best approach for projects, and developing the leadership and management skills needed to grow effective project management teams.
