The IT PM Mastery Suite features 25 individual modules, in two to four hour increments, each detailed to a specific point in the IT project lifecycle. Pick and choose what you need to fill skill gaps.

If you know a specific lifecycle phase you’d like to focus on, you can also choose our Module Packages, highlighted below in gray boxes.

Business case development; project charter creation; SOW; estimation of project constraints; project deliverables; Presentation skills of business case Alignment of the project's deliverables, features, capabilities; quality/acceptance criteria; project constraints; project lifecycle planning Understanding of the modern estimation techniques used on projects for the estimation of durations, costs, effort, and performance Definition of the project communication demands, venues, information sources, frequency, and ownership of project progress status and reporting activities Identification, analysis using Interest vs. Impact techniques, relationship building, and stakeholder expectation management are necessary skills for IT project management Development and management of stakeholder, solution, and technical requirements with requirements activities of elicitation, gathering, analysis, management, and control Understanding different IT lifecycles such as Project Management Life Cycle (PMLC), Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), and Systems Engineering Life Cycle (SELC) Understanding impact analysis, sensitivity analysis, boundary determination, and deliverable change analysis reduce risks of changes to an already in-flight IT project Using the systems engineering approach to configuration management, IT project teams can establish and maintain consistency of a deliverable's performance and quality Design, definition, and development of the scope baseline components: scope statement, WBS, and WBS dictionary Building on the scope baseline, the project's time management begins with the continued deconstruction of the WBS The project's cost management begins with the bottom-up definition of the task's cost components summarizing up to the project's top level summary task and thereby the initial project's budget estimation. Metrics for success; deliverables acceptance criteria; defined levels of outcome performance and utility by the project sponsor Identification, assessment, mitigation, and management of project risk is a primary success factor for all IT projects. Planning tools are used to illustrate how project plans, requirements, artifacts, registries, and logs are created, populated, maintained, updated, and baselined The identification, determination, and negotiation for assignment, resource capabilities, and skills definition are part of human capital management for projects The delivery of IT project deliverables can and does impact the success of IT projects by providing useable and effective sub-deliverables to project users and sponsors Using leading edge execution tools show how an IT project manager will 'execute to plan' in order produce the quality acceptable deliverables to the project sponsor Closing of acquisition contracts, deliverables acceptance events, and warranty period management are studied with their most appropriate tools and techniques Process improvement schemes such as the Capabilities Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), ISO, COBIT, IT-CMF, and others are discussed IT project monitoring solutions are necessary in order to provide the manager with the data necessary to support the utilization of project performance evaluation systems Control/management of the project's processes via a variety of innovative tools and techniques are necessary skills and capabilities that IT project managers must obtain Use of different acquisition contractual artifacts, their legal specifications, and fulfillment requirements are necessary skill components for IT project managers Based on recent changes, updates and modifications proposed by the US government, IT acquisitions in support of modular development are being considered. Managing vendors of an IT project management demands skills from the project manager in communications, collaboration, monitoring, discipline, and remediation
