Welcome to Managing a Project with Digital Tools!
Every job in every field involves different responsibilities, tasks, and decisions.
You probably do many projects at work or in your personal life that require multiple steps
The more efficiently you can organize and manage those steps, the more likely it is
that your projects will be completed successfully.
Project managers figure out specific tasks that need to be accomplished for a project
to meet its goals, then make a plan for how to get them done.
In this unit, you will use online applications like Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google
Slides to practice different parts of managing a project.
You can apply the project management and digital skills you learn in this unit to any responsibilities
or tasks you might do at work or in your personal life.
In this unit, you will
Create a Project Charter in Google Docs that communicates important details about
your project to key people.
Make a Project Tracker in Google Sheets that shows the status of tasks and deadlines
at a glance.
Build a Project Budget in Google Sheets that tracks your project’s estimated costs
And Create a Progress Report Presentation in
Google Slides for an audience that is interested in your project’s status.
Next, move on to one of the activities to get started!
