Beginner’s Guide to Project Management – Not for Idiots!

Lesson 2

Welcome to our short Beginner's Guide to Project Management.

It's not really for dummies, or for idiots. Because that's not who you are. But there's no shame in being a beginner: we all started at the beginning!

In this lesson, I'll introduce you to all the basics a beginner project manager needs. We'll cover:

  1. 1
    What is a project, and what is project management?
  2. 2
    The two sorts of project management: 'traditional', predictive or planned PM and 'agile', adaptive PM
  3. 3
    - 'traditional', predictive or planned PM - 'agile', adaptive PM
  4. 4
    The Project Lifecycle of a planned project
  5. 5
    The core concept of all project management (traditional and agile)
  6. 6
    The eight steps in a predictive project - and the core skills of any project

This video won't make you into a fully-formed project manager. But it will give an absolute beginner all the basic information you need to get started.
