Project Management - Understanding Project Management

Project Management - Understanding Project Management

Project management isn’t just for construction engineers and military logistics experts anymore. Today, in addition to regular job duties, people are often expected to take on extra assignments and to get that additional job done well, done under budget, and done on time.

This workshop is not intended to take participants from a supervisory or administrative position to that of a project manager. However, these three days will familiarize them with the most common terms and the most current thinking about projects.

In this workshop, you will walk participants through the nuts and bolts of project management, from setting priorities to controlling expenses and reporting on the results. They may still have to cope with the unexpected, but they’ll be better prepared.

Specific learning objectives will include:

  • Understand what is meant by a project.
  • Recognize what steps must be taken to complete projects on time and on budget.
  • Sell ideas and make presentations.
  • Use simple techniques and tools for planning and tracking a project.
  • Use methods for keeping the team focused and motivated.
