PM Boot Camp Course Description

Ramapo College of New Jersey offers an eight hour intensive Project Management Boot Camp. The workshop is taught by John Thomas, a highly experienced and highly rated Project Management Professional and can be delivered in a one day (eight-hour) format, two half-day (four-hour) format, or on-line.

The workshop requires three hours of online pre-work where each student lists three of their own projects, and then (1) prepares a stakeholder register (a list of persons who care about the project) (2) defines the interests and expectations of these stakeholders and (3) provides additional high-level information about their projects that are used later in writing other project documents.

Sequence of topics:

Philosophy and the methodology of projects
Advantages of project management-notion, purpose, benefits, key principles

Lecture and individual exercises
Tools for effective project management
Project planning – project definition, structure, project phases, milestones, capacities and costs

Students create simple documents, using Excel® and Word®, for projects they have previously completed. Since the experience of many students is similar, several of these documents may be created in small groups.
• The charter
• The scope statement
• The level 1 and 2 Work Breakdown Structure
• A Project Schedule Lecture and group exercises

Project organization-roles of the people involved in a project
• The stakeholder list and the project team Analysis of risks and possible prevention
• A reduced-size Risk Register

Project controlling-reporting, information flow, costs, progress
• Communication strategy
• A Project Dashboard

At the end of the boot camp, students will have completed the project planning and control templates they have started. These can then be used in their daily work to help run effective, successful projects.

MS Project 2010 and 2016 Boot Camps Course Description

The Ramapo College MS Project 2010 and 2016 Boot Camps provide hands-on, intensive exposure to this essential project management tool.

There are millions of licensed users of MS Project, but there is a lot of hidden capability that is not used. This live, eight-hour boot camp breaks down the hidden features, and allows the student to use the program as it was designed.

The centerpiece of this boot camp is student construction of a detailed, resourced, costed project schedule, and then tracking of that schedule. The student will also prepare the schedule for presentation using the extensive display features in MS Project. We will also show how other MS Office products can be used for both data input and output.

Proficiency in MS Excel and MS Word is required, as well as attendance at the Ramapo College PM Boot Camp.

The instructor is a PMP, and has used MS Project for twenty years.
