Program

The program of the course is based on the PMP (Project Management Professional) methodology. In addition to that, we use some aspects taught within the modern MBA courses such as business model canvas and other concepts. We also include in the course the fundamentals of Lean Start-up theory – MVP (minimum viable product).

The course includes the foundations of Project management – the participants will learn how to write a project charter, determine project objectives. The participants will be taught how to prepare the stakeholders register, how to assess the risks and prepare the risk register. They will also learn other elements of the project management theory.

Knowledge of the project management theory will allow the participants after returning back to their organizations to be more effective in creating the projects. They will be able to draft the projects in a professional manner.

The participants will learn how to write a business plan according to modern business theory. They will learn the content of the business model canvas, will learn how to write it.

The most fundamental concept of Lean Start-Up theory – the MVP (minimum viable product) also will be introduced to the participants. The concepts tell on the minimal requirements needed for the success of the project. The concept will be especially useful for participants without or with minimum experience in project management. They will learn what are the minimum requirements needed for the project.

All the learning will be accompanied by practical exercises. The participants will not only learn the theory but also will learn how to use it. During the course, participants will be offered to try to practice the theory they learn.
