Learn PMP for Free - Project Human Resource Management


Welcome to another Monday morning release of the latest module from our free self study PMP course. As you've no doubt diligently completed last weeks Project Quality Management module, you now have a keen understanding of quality, cost and time management which are all vital aspects of project management and are closely interlinked. Usually an issue in one of the three areas impacts the other two. For example a project runs slowly....costs will go up which in turn result in a sacrifice to the quality of the end product to ensure the project comes in on budget.

This week we take a look at Project HR Managment, with nine modules released and only four to go, we can soon begin to launch all the free practice tests, exercises and additional resources. 

So without further delay, lets look at this weeks release in more detail.

What is Project Human Resource Management?

The most important piece of any project? ....... people. Failing to recruit the correct individuals or selecting a team that cannot work together is effectively a death sentence for the success of your project.

Project Human Resource Management is the process of planning the human resource required for the project, ensuring that resource is recruited and then managing that team towards project success. 

Your ability to successfully execute projects hinges on you digesting and implementing the knowledge contained within this module.

What is covered in Project Human Resource Management?

You will work through four sub-sections  in this module allowing you to effectively plan and execute Project HR Management. The four sub-sections are divided as follows:

9.1 - Develop Human Resource Plan - Planning
