Course Length:
2 8-Hour Days

In the world of projects, it’s said that, “The Project Manager has all the responsibility for a project’s success, but not the authority to make it happen!” In today's cross-functional, high speed, multi-location and high-demand project environments, being successful has never been more difficult (and failure more public.) Project Facilitation Workshop is designed to help both full-time Project Managers, Team Leaders and PMO Members help project teams achieve success.

A major goal is to have participants able to apply key facilitation, leadership and project management tools and concepts to help get things done!
