As project managers, we tend to keep our eyes focused on the finish line. For us, it is all about on-time completion. Once the deliverables have been handed over to our project sponsor or client, we relax -- the project is over. But is it really? Project closeout always presents challenges: from getting final approvals, to performing administrative and contract closure, to capturing lessons learned, and more. At the rapid pace of business today, efficient project closure is a must and may even give you a competitive edge. This seminar introduces project managers to the best practices for getting final signoffs and closing out projects. Project managers will come away with a structured closeout framework and some templates that can be used to complete an orderly project closeout.
This course is providing one Professional Development Unit (PDU) for each course hour. These PDUs can be used towards the requirements for maintaining Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification. Seminar attendance qualifies for 2 (two) PMI PDUs in the Technical category. A certificate of attendance will be issued upon completion of the course.
