Project Management (Staff) 2 Days September 12 & 13
Intensive Two Day Workshop
Secrets of Sane Project Managers
Delivering work on-time and on-budget can be a real challenge. Making sure you deliver what is expected, ideally the first part of the project, is often done inadequately, leading to missed expectations and frustration. This course presents a sane project management model, tools and practices.
Our goal is to blend theory with application and save you time, frustration (and credibility) by:
· Practicing foundational project management skills
· Identifying resource within Georgetown that can help you after class
· Drafting a personal roadmap for getting more done with and through people
Specific activities you may choose to complete during this session include:
- Articulating the purpose, players and products of the project
- Practice kicking off the project so all team members feel engaged and aware of their responsibilities and interdependencies
- Breaking the work effort into meaningful pieces, estimating time, cost and risk elements of that work
- Determining the proper resources for that work and where to turn for help
- Creating a project plan that fits their group's needs, expectations and practices
- Engaging vendor management to help you secure outside services, monitor performance and stay within the legal limits of the contract (NOTE: if we coordinate with Georgetown's procurement team, having them present a short overview of their services to the attendees, this section is much more powerful.)
- Preparing a plan for effective project communications & risk
- Selecting appropriate quality measurements for the project deliverables and project activities
- Discussing and practicing project performance reviews, including who should receive those evaluations, as well as what should / should not be in the review
