Project Management can be defined as an organized and managed set of activities that results in the achievement of a unique and well-defined end-result or work product or deliverable. Resources are mobilized and deployed to perform the activities in a controlled fashion. A project, implicitly and by definition, has a start and an end. Therefore, a project differs from recurring operational activities that may be performed many times repeatedly in a typical corporate environment. The Project Management process area defines those characteristics of a project team that are essential to successfully conducting the initiatives that are needed to meet the goals of the ITAM.
The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) is earned by studying two areas of information technology asset management (ITAM). Advanced courses are built around the world class curriculum developed by the International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers.
The certificate can be earned by completing two courses of advanced study through the online platform. Courses contain a series of video lectures, access to full time instructors as needed, review of ITAM concepts, and complete with a self-evaluation exercise that both brings the materials together, and provides immediate business value for you and your organization.
The Project Management Advanced Course of Study is based on the information and practices contained in the IAITAM Best Practice Library (IBPL) Project Management volume 5 which defines Project Management as an organized and managed set of activities that results in the achievement of a unique and well defined resultant work product or deliverable, all completed through a controlled and well planned process.
Project Management can be defined as the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that those resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within a defined scope, time and within cost constraints.
In this Advanced Course you will learn the factors that separate a project from normally recurring operational activities, the importance of selecting an effective project team, how to choose those people, and the specifics of how and why Project Management is such an integral part of IT Asset Management.

Each course has an online discussion component guided by course instructors where learners share insights and opinions relative to the course material. Learners have the opportunity to gain significantly from the vast experiences of the instructors and other professionals. Some form lasting friendships that benefit both parties professionally.
