Effective project management is essential for leading change. Whether you’re an advocacy leader supervising a campaign, or a researcher developing a memo on an important policy, it’s critical to be able to manage a project from initiation through execution.
By taking themes from the private sector, this project management course focuses on project management in the nonprofit and public sectors. The course starts by defining important terms like project and project manager.
Next, the course outlines the four phases of project management. The course concludes with a discussion of evaluation and how to ensure a project remains successful.
Throughout the course, we refer to well-known examples of project management from the public sector. We additionally provide insight into how to approach project management with an equity mindset.
The course is virtual and self-paced, so you can work through the content on timeline that works best with your busy schedule.

There will be opportunities for you to ask questions and if you complete the course, you can submit a project plan for feedback from a member of our Policy & Advocacy staff.
