Project Management

Every leader is faced with managing a project, whether part of their regular job or on an exception basis. Regardless of the project, it needs to meet the purpose and objectives originally intended, be on time and within budget. Our goal through teaching these skills is to ensure your projects and those of the other leaders in your organization meet these criteria.

Project management provides the skills needed to effectively manage a project to completion. Inevitably, project success is critical for organizational success. Project management provides practical, step-by-step techniques that result in the successful management of projects, regardless of size or complexity. You can build new skills or refine existing ones to maximize your performance in a project environment.

This process guides the thinking necessary to logically define, plan, and implement projects. This simple process provides a common language that helps project managers communicate project needs, surface and resolve project issues, and manage the project. Combined with the traditional project management tools and techniques—also learned in the workshop—our concise and comprehensive approach can be learned and applied quickly.

WHO CAN BENEFIT

Project Management is designed for leaders working on projects as small as moving the office or as large as bringing a new product to market. This process can be learned and applied by all individuals charged with making sure projects are completed successfully. If you are new to project management, this workshop will provide you with a concise and comprehensive introduction that can be used immediately. Even experienced project managers benefit from this logical process and specific tools.
