This one-day training session will provide you with knowledge, tools, techniques, and will dive into soft and hard skills needed to effectively initiate, plan, execute, control and close projects, achieve company’s objectives, align with stakeholders, and deliver initiatives according to scope, budget, and schedule.

What You Will Learn

  • Intro to project/program/portfolio management - There are endless examples of projects and many can be cross-industry and cross-functional, which means those projects can do more than one thing at time and will utilize combined efforts from different industries or different functions.
  • Projects vs. operations - Project management types and methodologies - The types of projects and the difference between a daily job and a project, hint: projects are temporary and unique!
  • Project management types and methodologies - There are several project management methodologies, and some are more popular in certain practices and industries than others. It is important to note that more than one practice can be used for a project, but care should be applied in order to avoid confusion and the collision of mandates from different methodologies among the project team.
  • PM process groups - Those are the phases of a typical standard/waterfall project: Initiating, planning, executing, monitoring/controlling, and closing.
  • PM knowledge areas - The following knowledge areas are critical to be addressed in any projects you manage: Integration, scope, schedule, cost, quality, HR, communication, risk, procurement, stakeholders.
  • Change management and alignment with project management - It is very important to align project and change management. One without the other would create significant inefficiencies and may even cause failure to the efforts at hand.
  • Tools and artifacts - This will demonstrate a proprietary tool that you can use to manage a project from inception to completion.
  • Group exercise to apply knowledge - This will be your opportunity to practice what you have learned and utilize a proprietary tool to initiate, plan, execute, monitor, and close a project.
  • Soft skills - A great project manager possesses the technical capabilities and knowledge to get the job done, but also the people skills to ensure they can manage and partner with the project stakeholders. This will highlight some of the most important soft skills needed to be a successful project leader.
