Learn to apply the common body of knowledge for wilderness search and rescue efforts to the project environment! Project Management Professionals (PMP)® earn 5 PDUs upon course completion.

PSAR uncovers the body of knowledge around traditional search and rescue teams who recover individuals lost in the wilderness, and applies this information to the project environment. The parallels are striking! You will learn how to recognize lost projects based on individual behaviors, and how to identify and correct them to ensure your project is not lost in the wilderness.

Description

This course will begin by exploring the accepted Body of Knowledge surrounding Search and Rescue best practices. We will discuss the common stages of emotions and behaviors of those who have become lost, and we will discuss the successful behaviors of those who survive through the experience of being lost.
