The Effective Project Management Workshop
Teams in today's workplaces are involved in a multitude of change projects from designing new products and systems to simply revamping their own work processes. But many of these teams have never been trained in managing such projects, and therefore, struggle with
meeting project deadlines or even completing them at all.
This valuable training session helps teams elevate their project management skills. The Effective Project Management Workshop is a 2- or 3-day session that takes participants through the vital steps necessary for successfully managing projects.
The session uses extensive participant involvement to create training that is not only practical and enlightening, but also experiential for maximum transfer of skills.
The session also comes with a specially-designed Project Tool Kit on diskette for each participant.
Why not give your teams the skills they need to move their projects along more effectively and efficiently? Increase your team project completion rate, reduce the time involved, and eliminate frustration.
Or, let us train your project managers or we'll certify you to train them. Either way, your organization wins.
