These factors might include resolving interpersonal conflicts, managing multiple priorities, negotiating win-win arrangements, taking actions to avoid risks, and focusing on quality. At the end of this course you should be able to: 

  • Describe the aspects of a project that need monitoring and controlling.
  • Identify specific ways monitoring and controlling can be accomplished.
  • Describe interpersonal conflict, typical causes, and methods of resolving.
