Training Course Syllabus:

Fundamentals of Project Management 2-Day Training Class

Project managers wear more hats than almost anyone. They're planners, schedulers, and big-picture thinkers. Project managers must be team builders, coaches, and motivators. They need to know how to negotiate for more time, more resources, and fewer changes. They've got to be smart risk takers, turn-on-a-dime decision makers, and communicators extraordinaire.

This two-day workshop is the most practical and comprehensive introduction to the many facets of project management you'll find anywhere.

As a participant, you will get a thorough briefing in the nuts and bolts of planning, scheduling, and budgeting. You'll discover the communication skills it takes to get ideas, instructions, and requests across quickly and accurately. You will learn how to stay on top of deadlines and expenses, ways to rebound quickly from surprises and setbacks, and how to get the best from people who don't normally report to you.

Everyone who attends this workshop will come away in a strong position to lead any project with confidence and discipline — from drawing board to finished product.

This is multidiscipline training that will make you a better all-around project manager …

  • Learn the imperative questions to ask before you even begin — get the information that will make certain you key in on what is expected, by when, and at what cost
  • Practice using the planning and scheduling tools that professional project managers use (GANTT charts, the critical path method, work breakdown structures, project management software, and others)
  • Discover the best places to find the people you'll need, how to articulate the kind of skills, attitudes, and work habits you're looking for, and ways to pry the people you want from their own work, maybe even from a reluctant boss
  • Implement the controls and safety nets you need to establish early on: learn how to set (and meet) milestones, gain confidence to negotiate for new deadlines if necessary, motivate a team that's losing interest, and determine what to do when plans change midstream — or when the "Murphy factor" hits your project in a big way

Who will benefit most?

  • Self-taught project managers seeking formal training and new skills
  • Project teams having trouble juggling their tasks and responsibilities
  • People with limited experience in spearheading a project
  • Anyone about to step into a project manager role for the first time

Fundamentals of Project Management — Seminar Overview

How to begin every project with your eyes wide open

  • Goals? Objectives? Desired outcomes? How to determine precisely what your project is expected to accomplish
  • An 11-point checklist to make sure you and the project sponsor are on the same page
  • Questions to ask that will bring any and all constraints — involving money, performance, deadlines — to the surface early on
  • What work truly deserves "project" status — the pros and cons of project management

The planning it takes to pull off a glitch-free project

  • Work Breakdown Structure — what it is, how it works and ways to use it to consolidate and prioritize tasks
  • How to determine the time it takes to do a task — a nearly foolproof formula to help you arrive at a realistic time frame
  • Gantt charts and critical paths: 2 scheduling tools that can help you spot potential conflicts and fine-tune your timing
  • 7 steps to creating a budget that's realistic, manageable and flexible

How to set your project in motion

  • Put it in writing? Call a meeting? Send an email? Set up a one-on-one? Your communication options and when to use which ones
  • An 8-point checklist for productive team meetings
  • When you've got bad news — ways to soften the blow without sugarcoating the facts
  • Ways to develop a "balanced team" — how diversity can add to innovation and lessen the dangers of "groupthink"

Why you need to keep a close watch on your project's progress — and how to do it

  • The importance of meeting milestones and the domino effect of missing them by even a little
  • Minding the money — how to cope with cost overruns and ways to minimize their effect
  • Excuses and blaming; habitual lateness; "paralysis of analysis" and other red flags that your project may be heading for trouble
  • "Crashing" a project: what it means, when to do it, how to predict its outcome

Closing up shop — how to "deliver" your completed project

  • How to decide if your project has met all your objectives — key questions to ask yourself before making final delivery
  • An 8-point checklist that can help ensure you've covered all the bases
  • Abandoned projects: the "salvage value" to look for if for some reason your project gets scrapped midstream or mothballed upon completion

Critiquing your performance and celebrating your success!

  • What went right — and why? What went wrong — and how would you do things differently? Any lessons to share with your successors? Any insights your client might appreciate? You'll learn ways to evaluate your team's performance so that you can leverage your experiences for the next project
  • Keeping the project spirit alive within your organization by celebrating your success: You'll come away with a wealth of ideas to reward team members, acknowledge your project's contribution (to your organization, perhaps even your industry), and create the kind of goodwill that makes people want to be a part of your next project team
