Projects and project management operate in an environment broader than that of the project itself. Managing the day-to-day activities of the project is necessary, but not sufficient for success. The project life cycle defines the phases of a project from initiation to closure. Courses in this program provide in-depth training in all the project life cycle phases and are made vivid by the real-life experiences shared by the instructional staff. ROI uses customer-specific case studies to ensure practical application of skills and techniques learned throughout the curriculum.
