Leading-edge Network: Project Management

Many people define “project management” differently based on their profession or how it is utilized in their company environment. Everyone agrees it involves knowledge and the ability to make things happen.

The online offerings in the Project Management Leading-Edge Network (LEN) uses the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) definition, which states that project management is “the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.”

Specifically these are the tools, techniques, and processes postulated by PMI®. The knowledge and skills generally come from the project manager, who has experience with managing projects. The culmination of these two areas forms the basis for effective project management.

The LEN’s online offerings give a thorough overview of the components of the PMI®’s Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) as well as serving as a refresher or preparation for the PMP® examination.

Drexel also offers courses in Project Management Test Preparation and Lean Six Sigma.
