Leading Successful Projects
This 2-day workshop, divided into 4 modules, is designed for 6–18 participants.
"I'm expected to manage different teams on projects that are important and have a lot of visibility. I have to focus each team, meet deadlines, and come in on budget. What process do I follow to pull it all together?"
Welcome to the new world of management work. It's no longer about “sweating the small stuff” because most of the small stuff is no longer a manager's responsibility. Those day-to-day tasks have been replaced with project work that takes weeks or months to complete. Managers now lead, or are part of, project teams that are responsible for projects with a direct and significant connection to the bottom line. Unfortunately, many managers are not really prepared to lead project teams. As a result deadlines, budgets, and deliverables are all at risk.
Leading Successful Projects provides the structure, process, and tools necessary to master the art and science of project management. The program identifies the critical phases every successful project must go through, and examines each phase through the lens of the questions that must be answered to assure project control and progress.
Leading Successful Projects enables managers to identify and work with the key variables that impact how projects are defined, planned and implemented. The program also focuses on the interpersonal skills managers must use to win and maintain the commitment, enthusiasm and support of the project team.
