Introduction to Week 4: Executing Projects

Welcome to Ready, Set, Go: Project Execution! During week 4 we will focus on answering the following questions: How do we execute projects? What approaches should we consider implementing in doing so?

In our final week, we will move from plan to action and consider the execution phase of a project. We’ll learn about the earned value approach for monitoring and controlling progress. We will consider the individuals who are executing the project and how their habits impact project progress. We’ll discuss some alternative methods for project execution such as Agile, Scrum, and Kanban. Finally, we will review and summarize the course and our journey from project definition through execution and completion.
