Can anyone help me, I am a new student to Project Management.

By pmbrown36 ·
I am a student at Drexel University attending Goodwin College of Professional Studies. I am in the process of studying to receive my Masters Degree in Project Management. My former background is in Accounting, this became a dead end for me so I decided to go back to school and complete my Masters in Project Management, which is a career change for me. I love the field of Project Management and how it helps you to redefine how you look at life. Everything doesn't just happen, there is a process involved.

If you have not had time in the field and been exposed to what is really taking place, you need many mentors. Project Management is not a fly by night event. I am in need of help from the Project Management Community.

I am presently taking E-Tools for Project Management and Project Quality Management. I need to connect with seasoned PM's in the field to mentor me so that I will have more than just book knowledge. The help of the community would be greatly appreciated in addressing the following questions that I must ask of Project Managers already in motion.

What tools are in use to assist with quality management?

Who is responsible for quality management and what is the value of quality/Lean Six Sigma to the project and the organization?

How do you use quality management (tools, tactics, strategies, etc.) to identify and solve project problems?

What are the top three most important aspects of quality management/Lean Six Sigma when it comes to good project management?

Explain the difference between quality control and quality assurance. In doing so, use "real" examples from project work in terms of people (roles, responsibilities), tools, templates, and deliverables, and explain the difference relative to the stages/phases of project management.
