Project management abilities are among the most sought after skill sets by professionals and employers. Skilled project managers are in high demand but while many people have led projects, far fewer have received training in the fundamental tools and techniques that provide the key to successful project management.
This one-day workshop will provide participants with the tools they need to develop and manage a project from inception to conclusion. This includes knowing how to plan and estimate your work, sequence activities, evaluate progress and obstacles, and collaborate with staff and stakeholders to get the job done. This training is an accessible program that quickly brings you up to speed on ways to get the most out of your own workplace projects.
This workshop includes interactive learning. You’ll acquire a powerful set of project tools and then collaborate with team members to use these tools to plan, estimate, manage and report on your projects. To ensure a realistic learning environment actual workplace or personal projects will be utilized. You’ll leave with a thorough understanding of a project manager’s role in creating a project plan and following it through to successful completion.
Key Benefits to Participants:
- An understanding of the roles of project manager and the project team
- An ability to generate sound estimates of the effort and duration of current projects
- An ability to create a reliable project plan including Work Breakdown Structure
- An ability to identify project risks and communicate progress towards your goals
Who Will Benefit: This course provides valuable real-world skills, tools and techniques for anyone who manages a project in manufacturing, financial services, high tech, health care, or the bio-tech industries.
