Webinar Details

OVERVIEW

Refine your organizational skills to keep your projects on time, on budget, and target. You've learned the basic techniques of project management. You've mastered the planning, executing, reviewing, and revising skills making the difference between success and absolute failure. You are good at getting the different players and stakeholders to provide information or direction and to show up for important milestones along the way. Now you're ready to hone your organizational skills, communicate even more effectively, avoid major project pitfalls, and work well with others to meet project deadlines and objectives. Build on your fundamental knowledge and bring in your projects on time, on budget, and target. Expand your capacity to balance day-to-day work and these special PM assignments.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

Once you have begun using the basic project management skills and tools, you should be getting better results. However, these basics are not enough for continued success. You must now 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. You will develop a plan to integrate new skills and tools systematically and use references for your continuous improvement. NOTE: A basic course in Project Management is a prerequisite to benefit from this program.
