Course Description:

Today’s knowledge workers have quietly slipped into the role of the unofficial project manager. Stakeholders, scope creep, no formal training, and a lack of process all combine to raise the probability of project failure costing organizations time, money, and employee morale. This one day workshop session will help you to consistently complete projects successfully by teaching you to implement a disciplined process to execute projects and to master informal authority by learning to initiate, plan, execute, monitor and close a project. Attendees are encouraged to focus on their own current projects for a hands-on experience. This training may be used to satisfy Professional Development Units (PDUs) needed by PMI credential holders.
