Rice University Course on Strategic Project Management

Posted by admin on 04/01/2019 2:06 pm  /   Sponsor


What advanced skills can you add to your PMP toolkit to go beyond the basics of project management?  Under proper leadership, important projects can add significant value to an organization.  A strategic-thinking project manager can be instrumental in mining and harnessing value above and beyond the business justification for a project.  Strategic project managers add value to the organization by linking key projects to strategic objectives, enhancing the organization’s return on project investments and providing long-term business value. GetSmarter/2U, Inc. has partnered with Rice University to deliver a data-driven on-demand course focused on learning gain.

The course is taught by Eddie Merla, PMI-ACP, PMP®. Eddie is a Senior Project Manager, Coach, and Trainer with over 20 years of hands-on Project Management experience.
