Course Description

Good planning can make all the difference in creating a successful public health project. Project planning can be thought of as a series of specific steps, keys to success that will help projects of all types run smoothly and effectively. You don't have to be a project management expert to successfully plan a project. If you carefully think things through and use common sense, your plan can provide a solid foundation for your project and help you make and communicate important decisions.

Target Audience

  • Public health professionals and public health students
  • Professionals in other fields interested in learning about effective project planning

  • Identify possible problems with a project and ways you can deal with them.
