Making Project Management Work
in Your Organization—Instructor-Led Virtual
As an experienced project manager, you know that utilizing sound project management fundamentals and techniques gives you the best chance for success. But in many organizations, getting project management to work the way it needs to work is difficult, and sometimes impossible. Between the people around you who don't practice good PM—and the lack of support from management—how can you be expected to succeed?
If you are struggling to utilize project management fundamentals and techniques within your organization—for whatever reason—this course is key to your future success. This hands-on workshop utilizes group discussion, group problem solving and case studies directly from attendees, and will give you ideas and techniques for utilizing project management within your organization that you can use immediately. This is NOT a 4-hour lecture. The direction of this course is 100% audience-driven, which means no two courses will ever be alike!
At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to:
- Identify a variety of ways to make project management work better in their organizations.
- Develop a plan to implement consistent and sound PM practices within their organizations.
- Gain buy-in from managers and co-workers.
- Implement their plan of action quickly and effectively.
Although the actual content of the 4-hour course will be primarily audience-driven, the presenter will attempt to cover the following topics:
- Dealing with Virtual Teams
- Handling Unrealistic Schedules
- Managing Scope Change
- Developing Consistent Processes
- Combating Poor Communication
- Overcoming Poor Risk Management
