This past year has shown us the need for numerous projects and the need to manage those projects in a unique way. Project management is a way of thinking and has proven to be an important path to increased success. Most of the largest organizations have embraced project management due to its being considered a "best practice" way to manage. Many of the smallest organizations might practice management, but without an organized plan and system. This course is designed to help the finance professional of a smaller organization practice project management in the finance function and also be familiar with the theories and practices making her more valuable on a project team. In an effort to avoid talking theory without concrete examples, we will often use examples born from projects needed as a result of our experiences with COVID-19.
