Boot Camp for Software Project Management


Course Details


This three-day course covers the basic principles and practices of a software project manager. It highlights the key indicators that project mangers must track to monitor progress and initiate change. It also describes how the measurable results defined by an organization can be organized into dashboards for different levels of management. Line managers use process or tactical dashboards to manage the process.

This program covers the eleven knowledge domains of the Certified Software Project Manager (CSPM) professional certification which describe the necessary skill sets that today’s software project manager must possess. Each participant will complete a project manager’s self assessment showing their strengths and weaknesses using the CSPM CBOK and then complete a self assessment footprint chart. Developing this baseline, the participant can then devise a strategy for personal preparation to sit for the CSPM certification examination. This is also an excellent program for experienced software project managers to refine and update their skill set in this professional area.

This is a foundation level course. This course requires no prerequisites, but having some project management experience would be advantageous.
