Project Management “The Survival Kit”
Projects carry complex concerns, not always found in traditional management. This half-day module introduces team members to Project Management and its structure. The structured model of Planning, Organizing, Scheduling, Controlling and Managing Change with specific tools and techniques is presented. The overall objectives of this workshop are to inform participants of their roles in projects; and to enable negotiation, communication, and coordination between management, project managers, stakeholders and members of the project team.
Since this program provides the essential tools and techniques practiced in TSE001 Project Planning and Control, it carries the nickname, “SURVIVAL”.Once completed, participants involved with PMI® and the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Professional – PMP program, are awarded 3.5 PDUs or 3.5 “Contact Hours”.
Upon completion of this workshop, each participant will be able to:
- Understand a project’s mission, objectives (SMART) and risks, and begin determining the scope of the work.
- Assemble a work plan; determine the schedule and options.
- Understand the importance of identifying and producing deliverables according to the agreed upon schedule, while still meeting specifications.
- Understand the importance of effective communications (No surprises!).
- Understand team member’s role in supporting the process and his or her associated responsibilities and stakeholders.
- Deal with project changes.
- Track and be able to report project progress and quality.
Instructional methods for this special half-day module are lecture, discussion and case study team exercises. Although Microsoft Project is not taught during this workshop, examples of its effective application and use are discussed and integrated.
