Overview:

As you begin using basic project management skills and tools, you will get better results.

However, these basics are not enough for continued success. You must continually improve your existing skills in project management, communication, understanding human nature, and working across organizational lines. You will have new challenges the more you lead successful projects. You will need to take a deeper dive into current project management standards and learn to use more sophisticated tools. All of this can be overwhelming on top of your many responsibilities and priorities.

Develop a plan to integrate new skills and tools systematically and use references for your own continuous improvement. Refine your organizational skills to keep your projects on time, on budget, and on target. Master planning, executing, reviewing, and revising skills, making the difference between success and failure. Put your skills to work getting the different players and stakeholders to provide information or direction and to show up for important milestones along the way. Hone your organizational skills, communicate even more effectively, avoid major project pitfalls, and work with others to meet project deadlines and objectives. Build on your fundamental knowledge and expand your capacity to balance day-to-day work and these special assignments.

  • Recognize the 'business problem' before the project begins
  • Organize tasks easily into logical groups of activities
  • Create a project plan to guide all your efforts
  • 'Manage' your project 'team' even if you don’t have one
  • Keep critical stakeholders informed and involved
  • Track progress and recognize quickly when things are slipping
  • Lead effective project meetings
  • Demonstrate successful project completion
  • Apply lessons learned to the next project
  • Hone organizational skills
  • Communicate even more effectively
  • Avoid major project pitfalls
  • Meet project objectives; Bring in projects on time, on budget, & on target

Why you should Attend:

You are already doing more than you thought possible and here comes this 'extra' assignment. Instead of being overwhelmed, you will set the work up as a project, manage it using an approach with a track record of success, and get the results your management requires. You'll hone your existing skills and build on them.

You'll apply what you learn to rest of your assignment, becoming more productive, and still have time to think about how to improve the overall performance of your area of responsibility. You do not have to reinvent the wheel or rely on a 'To-Do' list to get the results being demanded of you. You'll have access to resources which you can adapt to your specific situation.
