UW–Madison Project Management Fundamentals

Flipchart icon with project process timeline


UW–Madison Project Management Fundamentals is a new two-day course that focuses on formal project management tools and techniques. It is geared towards those who are in formal project management positions on campus, and acceptance into the course will be based on a nomination process. This course replaces the former Project Management Symposium, which was intended for a general audience.

(Note: We are currently in the process of developing a new Project Management 101 course, which will be open to everyone. It will introduce some of the tools and techniques of project management that non-project managers can apply in their work. Check back in early 2019 for additional information.)


This course has been specifically designed for the following audiences:

  • Early-career project managers
  • Project managers who have not had formal project management training/certification
  • Project managers who are interested in learning more about tools and techniques available to them
  • Project managers who will be working on an enterprise-wide (UW–Madison) project



(Class size is limited to 50 participants.)

Next Training Dates

February 20 and 21, 2019 (attendees should plan to attend both days)


Participants for this course are selected via a nomination process. Supervisors may nominate staff in their units, and staff may self-nominate.
