Full course description
What you'll learn:
The last phase in the project lifecycle is to formally close your project successfully. The Closing the Project course explores the various activities involved in the project management phase of closing the project. After the project work is completed and all the deliverables are accepted by the customer, the performing phase of the project is ended. The project then moves into the fourth and final phase of the project life cycle—closing the project.

- Project Integration Management
- Project Procurement Management
