Project Management for Start-ups

Project Management

When can we launch? How much does the product development cost? How many people do we need to hire? When should we start looking for office space? Who is responsible?

Project management helps you to create products in time and in budget, and keeps your start-up on course. This training gives you a set of professional tools and techniques to set up a project plan suitable for a startup and to track progress.

You will detect issues like resource overload or delays far ahead when countermeasures are still easy to implement. Instead of crazy all-nighters and cold-sweated emergency calls with your investors, you will get your sleep while your project is chugging along like a well-oiled machine.
