5 Steps for Managing Projects

OnDemand Webinar (94 minutes)

Learn the value-added activities and deliverables that will enable you to be agile and adapt to the needs of the organization, project, and team.Projects are ways that organizations implement strategy, improve processes, and respond to problems. Project managers must be able to plan and execute these projects to deliver the desired outcomes. And they must be able to do that with resources that are spread across multiple projects, and that have their regular operational responsibilities. Good project managers are in high demand and know that project management is more than creating a schedule, sharing status reports, and updating action item logs. It is about leading projects in a way that makes the best use of your organization's resources - people, time, and funding. This topic will provide you with a simple 5-step model you can apply immediately to manage projects of any size or duration. You will learn the value-added activities and deliverables of the project management process that will enable the project manager to be agile and adapt to the needs of the organization, project, and team. This information is critical for people who are new to project management or looking to refresh their skills.
