Synopsis

Managing Federal Government Projects explores the foundations of project management and how to initiate, plan, implement, monitor and report, and close out federal government projects.  The participant will explore the key activities and documentation related to each phase of the project lifecycle in this course.  Participants will also examine how the lifecycle includes the entry-level Requirements Development and Management Processes, Systems Engineering, Life Cycle Logistics, and Test and Evaluation competencies and performance outcomes, as defined by the FAC-P/PM policy and competency model. Finally, participants will reinforce the knowledge gained in this course and apply their skills to a series of exercises and case studies.
