Day 1: Essentials of Project Leadership
With the many challenges, you face every day to lead a successful project, this class will focus on project leadership skills and tools. Project leadership skills and tools are the focus of the class rather than pure project management or administration tools.
Focus areas include:
Defining the Project. Building and Managing the Team. Creating a Credible Schedule. Anticipating and Managing Risk and Opportunity. Managing Scope Creep. Executing the Plan. Closing the Project
Day 2: Communication is the Currency of Leadership
Participants will learn to identify project roles and team member communication styles. Skills are introduced that give foundation for working across generations, working across technology and working between cultures.
By learning P.A.C.E.™ communication training via the P.A.C.E.™ assessment, participants will leave with the tools they need to manage communication with those around them.
