PM Courses

Plus, learn how to accurately track performance throughout the project’s lifecycle using the valuable metrics.

Through case studies, classic project management theory, and real-world, hands-on experience, you’ll gain a portfolio of tools, processes and templates that can be used immediately on the job.

Return on Investment: Determining and Communicating the Project Value

NEW Scrum

Fundamentals

Companies are demanding reliable financial measures of proposed projects’ values. Yet project managers often don’t know how to identify, calculate or communicate a project’s ROI (return on investment).

Scrum is the most popular Agile framework and is being employed across virtually every business area and industry including emerging technology, software development, financial services, health care, universities, manufacturing, and marketing to improve ROI and time to market. This training is intended for individuals and teams wanting to experience the Scrum approach to work.

Traditional ROI calculations are increasingly being criticized for telling only part of the necessary story – afflicting all types of projects, but often causing the greatest difficulty in areas like IT, where benefits may seem intangible and frequent overruns impact the credibility of estimates.

Location

Register Early and Save

We are conveniently located in downtown Milwaukee in the Plankinton Building above The Shops of Grand Avenue. Classes are held on the 7th floor.

Look for courses with discounts for registering early.

Parking

A full refund is issued to program participants if the School of Continuing Education cancels a program for any reason. Participant withdrawals made at least two weeks (14 days) prior to the start of a program can receive a 100% refund. When a participant withdraws less than two weeks prior to the program start, participants may have their fees transferred one time to any currently available program, otherwise participants will receive a refund minus a 20% administrative fee. For programs with a fee of $35 or less, no refund will be given. Once a program has begun, refunds are no longer issued.

We provide a parking discount for participants in our classes/ programs who park in The Shops of Grand Avenue structure. More parking information at uwm.edu/sce/directions.
