Due to the current health concerns in the greater Los Angeles area, all GA short-form (one day) classes, workshops and bootcamps as of Monday, March 16 will temporarily be held online - including this one.

Registered students will be notified 48 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and Slack messaging apps. Registration for this class will close 2 hours prior to class start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

Please contact la@ga.co if you have any questions or concerns.

Project management has become one of the hottest jobs in the market today.

Many growing organizations have come to recognize the need for project managers in the wake of expanding operations and project teams. It’s not uncommon for designers, developers, and entrepreneurs to find themselves cast in the role of project manager, even if many of these responsibilities fall well outside their job description. This is also a good time to “break into” the profession of project management for folks who work in a different capacity at their organization.

Our workshop will focus specifically on the basics of project management for beginners. This is helpful whether you’ve recently found yourself cast in the role of project manager by your company, or whether you’re looking to make a career transition.

We will cover everything from project planning, project management methodologies (Agile and Waterfall), running meetings, to the “soft skills” needed to successfully facilitate a project. We’ll also explore the major project management tools in the marketplace. You’ll gain the tools that you’ll need to deliver great results.
