The business tools of Project Management (PM) can help you avoid unintended consequences, lost details, project stalling, and trying to do everything under the sun (instead of what your original project was supposed to be). While there are hundreds of complex PM tools, this workshop will allow you to experience the basic ones that you can use immediately, go back to time and time again, and continue to build upon to improve the results of your project work.
- Define, recognize, understand, and implement project management as opposed to operations management in your work environment
- Learn the project management life cycle and implement the basic tools needed for each step of the cycle
- Experience hands-on activities to demonstrate project management in action by using readily available tools to develop a project management model as a guide you can use over and over again
- Have the tools to effectively communicate to both supervisors and those whom you supervise the effective use of project management
Consider taking this workshop if the following are mostly true for you:
- Multiple projects leave you feeling overwhelmed
- Projects don’t move forward; sometimes it seems you are stalling out
- It’s unclear what exactly you are supposed to be doing (and why, and how, and with whom)
- You feel uncertain as to what you are in charge of, or what your role is in the project
- Projects may start out well, but then they morph into something way bigger than they started out to be
- It feels like you are never done with anything
- Project details get lost, i.e. who is doing what, by when, etc.
- There are unintended consequences of your work that impact others
