Free(ish) Project Management Tools

No sessions are currently scheduled for this event. To request a new session, please contact


We have all been there, collaborating on a project that tends to get derailed. Many times it is simply due to a lack of organization, communication, and planning. Instead of hiring a certified project manager, try some of the free(ish) tools designed to keep your project on track. This course will provide a basic introduction to the project management lifecycle, with a focus on executing and monitoring. We will also learn about a number of free(ish) project management tools that can help your team successfully complete the project.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this class, students will be able to:

Demonstrate a basic understanding of the project management lifecycle
Identify project management tools that are most appropriate for your team and/or project
Use project management tools in an upcoming project
