Project management is an important part of every organization; however, often companies don’t differentiate between project management and operations management. Sometimes the finance professional is called upon to serve on a project team, or in other cases is in a position to manage a project within the finance or accounting department. In either case, he
or she should be well versed in both the theory and practice of project management. While project management has probably been around since the time of building the pyramids, the modern discipline started to take hold in large organizations in the late 50s and early 60s. From there it spread to smaller organizations to the point where almost any sized organization can benefit from its ideas. This course is designed for the finance professional of the small and medium size organization. It is not meant for the experienced project manager of a large organization or the person wanting training for project management certification. In an effort to avoid talking theory without concrete examples, we will follow the hypothetical project of purchasing and implementing new general ledger software as the way of discussing the steps of project management.
This course features a live instructor and has been specifically designed for the NJCPA.
CFOs, controllers and finance professionals.
Experience in financial management of a small or midsize company.
