This seminar will provide business owners with an overview of how to manage these issues as well as provide better practices associated with project management. Project Management is defined as the application of concepts and techniques used to plan, staff, direct, monitor, and evaluate the events and activities needed to accomplish an objective. This course presents an overview of the fundamentals of project management, and a project management method for a business owner to follow.
