Course description

As your project work continues, you’ve monitored the schedule and budget baselines. Other important aspects of projects that need to be tracked and controlled are project performance, quality, communications, risks, procurements, and stakeholders. In this course, you’ll continue tracking project performance and control project quality. You will also continue to monitor and control the project, focusing on project risk, procurements, and stakeholders. Now that the project is completed, you are ready to officially close a project. Closing a project out is as important as initiating a project. The lessons learned during the course of a project are analyzed and addressed in the closeout phase so that the same mistakes or known issues will not occur again.

Prerequisites

It is recommended before taking the certification that you also use the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide, Fifth Edition to study with. You should have already viewed Project Management: Monitoring a Project.
