Course Description

This course was designed as a supplemental study guide for the major content areas of Chapter 5 of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Sixth Edition. In this course, you will learn how the processes in the Project Scope Management knowledge area interact with other aspects of the project life cycle in order to shape and define the work for a project.
