Project Management: Scope
This course is designed as an advanced exploration into the development of scope for a project. If a Project Manager can get a well-defined scope, he or she can develop a clearly defined and adequately detailed project plan. This allows the Project Manager to have a greater chance of success with the project. The course will not only discuss the development of this area but how to integrate the entire team into understanding what they need, and continuing to refine this process over the life of the project.
