What it Teaches

This video follows the story of a team who works together to build a prototype for an upcoming meeting at work. Thanks to a project manager, they are able to align their work efficiently and complete the project with limited time, budget and resources. It teaches:

  • Why project management matters in getting things done
  • How project managers help plan and align the team’s work
  • Why project scope (time, budget and resources) matters
  • How project managers work with stakeholders
  • How the basics of project management can be applied to other types of projects.
