Series Overview

The purpose of this training program series is to introduce NYS staff, acting in a Project Management (PM) role without formal training, to the fundamentals of the project management discipline as outlined in PMI's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).

The training program will consist of a series of 11 sessions. Session 1, the Overview, is a 90-minute lecture and exercise providing an overview of the role of the Project Manager and the Project Management discipline. The training program continues with a series of monthly 90-minute Knowledge Area sessions. Sessions 2-11 are based on the PMBOK Knowledge Areas. The Knowledge Area sessions will have a Lecture component and an Exercise component. The Lecture will introduce and describe the Knowledge Area. The exercise component will be based on a common management scenario that carries through all the sessions. There will also be an opportunity to discuss attendee questions, issues and real-life examples related to the Knowledge Area. The trainer will provide group involvement guidance and resolution suggestions.
