Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course, Defining Project Scope and Managing Resources. I'm the author of Pluralsight series of PMP and Business Analysis courses, and now it's my pleasure to help you learn more about project management and prepare for the CompTIA of Project+ PK0-004 exam with this second course in our CompTIA Project+ series. Earning a CompTIA Project+ certification is a great way to express your interest in project management as a profession, hone your skills, and learn about some of the tools and techniques leaders in the field utilize to find success. Best of all, the only requirement to take the exam and earn the CompTIA Project+ certification is a passion to learn more about project management. Some of the major topics that we'll cover in this course include the project chartering process, how to define requirements in project scope, how to develop work breakdown structures, and how to manage and optimize the use of physical, capital, and human resources. By the end of this course, you'll know how to assemble a project charter that sets a foundation for project success, know how to decompose project work into an actionable work breakdown structure, and be ready to continue your training with the courses that follow in this series. Interest in learning more about project management is the only prerequisite for this course, though exposure to project environments and the preceding course can certainly help as well. This course and others in the series can not only help you learn more about project management and prepare for the CompTIA Project+ exam, but also serve as a great refresher for established project managers and as an opportunity to earn continuing education credit towards certifications like the PMP. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about managing projects in the CompTIA Project+ certification with this course, Defining Project Scope and Managing Resources, at Pluralsight.
