Projects, big or small, tend to have an evasive quality to them. Their budget, schedule, content and even goals may change form over time, posing a significant risk to the successful completion of the project. As project managers, we must take that into account and manage the project in a manner that ensures optimal results.
‘Being a Project Manager’ is a unique training program for both occasional and experienced project managers that includes a book, online course and professional workshops delivered by our experts. Focusing on the principles and practices of project management, the program does not prescribe a specific methodology, nor does it offer complex explanations on how to manage projects. Instead, the program clearly lays out a path, explaining how to be an effective project manager in any sort of project, and any area of expertise.
Through this program we will discuss the building blocks of the profession – planning, control and communication, and provide you with a range of simple tools that can be easily implemented and used to improve your results immediately.
So, if a project lands on your desk, you can either hold your breath, cross your fingers and hope for the best, or you can get the tools you need to ensure a successful outcome.
