PDU Project Management for Non-Project Managers
What does everyone need to know about Project Management? This is a question that must be answered by Project Managers, exectives, and anyone in a position involving projects! Project Managers who want a different perspective for managing their teams can earn PDUs with these courses.

Professional Project Management is becoming more pervasive. Like "Electrification" occurred during the era of proliferation of electricity, "projectization" is occuring throughout the workforce and organizations. While most of the training emphasis is on professional project management, most people will not be professional project managers. Most will be team members, support personnel, subject matter experts, department managers, C-level executives, and related team positions.

The essential question is, "What knowledge level about project management do non-project managers need to have in order to function effectively on professionally managed projects?" To anser this question consider that over the past 25 years, with the proliferation of computers, virtually every worker has needed to acquire some level of computer hardware and software knowledge. This has included understanding the basics of Windows and MS Office, competence in using the internet, and the ability to use a variety of applications. Similarly, a basic level of knowledge is required to function effectively in a projectized world.
