Plenty of situational examples will be provided in order to maximize understanding and clarity. Topics include a brief history of the Project Management Institute (PMI), key terms and definitions,  detailed review of  process groups, knowledge areas and their linkage to project management process groups, multiple tools and templates that can be utilized across the knowledge areas, virtual project management, review of personality types using the DiSC model and how that knowledge can be effectively used to manage a team, as well as program, portfolio and alliance management. At the end of this course, students will understand how the basic principles of project management derived from PMI principles can be applied in clinical trial execution, as well as utilize the tools provided in the class for clinical trial projects in their own organization, be it a sponsor, CRO, or site.
