|Learn how to initiate a project, develop stakeholder management plans, and conduct requirements analysis.

However, specific techniques can help you deal with project risk and recognize and manage potential problems. Learn practical methods for completing difficult projects, and explore how to apply these methods to your own projects.|

Learn how to manage project execution through completion and evaluation. You also explore the tools and techniques for project control.|
