GOOGLE PROJECT MANAGEMENT CERTIFICATE

What is project management?

Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.

 

Think about the last time you planned a group vacation or trip. Finding a location, delegating who should bring what, collecting and tracking payments, coordinating your arrival, and ensuring everyone enjoys the trip are all project management tasks. Think about the value that accomplishing those tasks adds to your trip. Now, think about the value that can add to a company. Project management is valuable to businesses because it helps ensure that a project delivers the expected outcomes — both on time and within budget. So, as you can imagine, project management is critical to the success of projects both big and small.

 

Why start a career in project management?

Project managers are in high demand. As the workplace continues to grow and evolve, project managers serve as a pivotal piece to an organization’s ability to adapt and remain agile.

 

Project managers are natural problem-solvers. In addition to setting the plan and guiding teammates through the project, they are tasked with managing changes and risks. Each day is dynamic and different for a project manager because they are at the center of the project — building relationships, prioritizing tasks, and delivering results! Using various tools and templates, as well as a unique skill set, the project manager brings order to chaos.

 

Who is this program for?

You! No prior experience or specific knowledge is required. All you need is an interest in solving problems and working with people.
