Seminar Description: When most people think about project management, they think about core technical skills such as Gantt charts, PERT charts, dependency sequencing, and resource leveling. But successful project managers will tell you that effective project management is far more. It’s also the essential soft skills of communicating consistently, building teams, managing time and dealing with organizational politics, to name just a few. And when you add in the possibility that you're often working with borrowed resources (people, expertise, funding) that could get pulled with no advance warning, the difficulties start to multiply. Add in the biggest complaint heard from most project managers – I get all the responsibility but not the needed authority – and you can see why project management can be challenging.

This fast-paced and content-rich full-day seminar will cover all these aspects of project management – the nuts-and-bolts skills combined with the non-technical components, the details tied into the big picture.
Seminar Outline:
  • The project life cycle—its importance and its implications
  • The triple constraints model
  • How to negotiate for project resources
  • Technical project management tools including WBS, Gantt charts, and PERT/CPM charts
  • Project risk management
  • How to create a successful and balanced project team
  • Simple tools to implement, monitor and adjust project tasks and activities
  • Proactive steps to identify and positively deal with organizational politics
Pre-requisite:
Who Will Benefit: Those who are charged with managing projects but have never received any formal education in this area. Experienced project managers will walk away with tips.
