Project Management
PM Skills®: Analysis and Problem Solving


As a project leader, one of your main responsibilities will be to not only collect project data but to also analyze that data to uncover any patterns and trends in project outputs. You will then have to mesh those data analysis skills with creative problem-solving techniques to keep your project on pace and aligned to meet its goals. This self-paced, fully online course will help you develop the expertise you'll need to assess information, define problems, and uncover their root causes. You'll learn how to develop and implement solutions in ways that will resolve issues without creating new risks. And you'll begin to recognize the key role that analysis plays in your decision-making and problem-solving approaches, so you can efficiently guide projects to their successful conclusion.
