NEW COURSES: Five New Advance Project Management Courses!

RedVector is happy to announce that the following 5 courses have been released for Advanced Project Management.

Advanced Project Management: Advanced Project Risk Management

Project risk is based on a simple equation: Event Risk equals the Probability of an Event times the Consequences of the Event. As project managers we know this, either implicitly because we’ve studied and read about risk in projects or we know it from first-hand experience. We’ve also learned along the way that we cannot fully eliminate risk, only mitigate the risk and that there is no such thing as a risk-free project or action. During this interactive online course on project risk management we will go beyond the fundamental truths of project risk and cover how decisions are made, delving into decision theory and decision making in the face of uncertainty; as well as exploring risk management through the four phases of Risk Identification, Risk Analysis, Risk Response, and Risk Mitigation and Control.

Advanced Project Management: Integrated Project Delivery

Integrated Project Delivery is a construction delivery method that leverages a number of current trends to increase productivity and the speed of project delivery.

This interactive online course will teach you about the importance of IPD’s foundation of relational contracts, as well as the main ingredients that include a high-level of communications and collaboration and a no-fault work environment, from project charette through building commissioning. You will also learn about the roles that lean construction processes and building information modeling play in performing, as well as recognize that IPD has many of the traits of construction delivery systems that are compatible with green building certification systems.

Advanced Project Management: Project Management in a Dynamic Environment

This interactive, online course covers the nine principles that master project managers, and their teams, put into practice managing projects in a dynamic environment. This environment is one experienced by most, if not all, project managers. It’s an environment that holds speed and uncertainty as two of its most relevant characteristics. Both of these characteristics can cause severe stress during project planning and execution, and can lead to project failure if the project manager doesn’t develop the skills, knowledge, and leadership ability demanded in the dynamic environment of today’s projects. Mastering these nine principles will help you develop the inward and outward orientation, the formal and informal procedures, and the high-touch and high-tech communications strategy that you will require to be an effective, master project manager on your dynamic projects.

Advanced Project Management: Executing Complex Programs

In today’s fast-paced, competitive, and dynamic environment, the ability for an organization or individual to successfully execute a program is severely challenged. This is because programs are complex, wrought with uncertainty, and ripe with ambiguity. Efforts to navigate the complexity of programs often result in the program manager simply expending more of their vital time to make sense of it all, but there are only so many hours in the week and regardless how many hours you invest, the program will still be complex.

In this interactive online course, you’re going to be introduced to the Program Management Competency Model, which was developed to assist organizations and individuals make sense of the complexity of programs by focusing energy on the development of specific skill sets that yield the biggest return on investment. The six performance and eight personal competencies highlight areas where the development of knowledge, skills, and experience will return the greatest rewards for both organizations and individuals. The biggest reward being the capability and capacity to better execute complex programs.

 Advanced Project Management: Converting Strategy Into Action

All strategic change in an organization, any organization, takes place through projects and programs. To ensure that the strategic change results in the desired outcomes, however, takes planning, thought, and focus. In short, to get effective strategic change you need to have an effective strategic plan. Through an effective strategic plan, you are better postured to ensure that the projects and programs that are implemented create the future envisioned for your organization, be it increased profit or manufacturing of a new product.

This interactive, online course is intended to change that mindset by helping you understand that to generate the outcomes any organization intends, or desires, requires direction via an actionable strategic plan. The course is intended for any engineer, project or program manager, engineering manager or executive who wants to understand strategic planning via a simple process that will replace chance and luck with specific goals, objectives, and action initiatives.
