Project Management






Balancing the art and science of managing projects

Business leaders repeated tell us how important their project managers are in helping their organization achieve its objectives. They stress the critical role these organizational leaders have in ensuring strategy-focused initiatives are carried out effectively. A job this important is rich with demanding complexities. We believe great project managers not only have a strong mastery of the tools and processes in project management, but also have the leadership skills to deal with all aspects of their work with people across the organization.

This is why Harrisburg University leverages the expertise and resources from its graduate degree in Project Management to provide a series of innovative professional development courses. These courses are designed to enhance your skills as a project leader and provide immediate impact to your work. Our goal is to help you do more with less, increase ROI and reduce project failure rates by having greater influence over results.

Project Leadership

The art of project management represents what we refer to as ‘Project Leadership’—a skillset that addresses the complexities of project management brought about through people, culture, and strategy. Project Leadership skills surpass mastery of a project management methodology, and include the attitudes, skills and behaviors that enable individuals to become strategic partners with senior management, and motivational leaders for their teams and colleagues. Harrisburg University offers a variety of courses that explore topics such as communications, strategy, teams, stakeholders and innovation.
