Effective & Efficient Project Management Skills for Anyone
1-Hour CareerTrack Webinar
Life happens. Projects happen. Emails, phone
calls, meetings, calendars, tasks to complete, items to create, deadlines to
meet, you wonder how anything ever gets done. If you’re thrown into leading a
major project or you’re encountering a difficult series of multitasking
challenges for the first time, taking control of a project from beginning to end
can be intimidating and overwhelming. When you suddenly find yourself
responsible for managing an important project while juggling numerous other day
to day tasks and responsibilities at the same time and you’re trying to figure
out the steps or tools to make it all happen, you’re an accidental project
Managing the multiple projects both life and work can bring often seems like a
bigger project than any project itself. When you’re faced with an overwhelming
collective of tasks, projects, assignments, directives and an ever expanding “to
do” list that seemed to appear overnight, it can lead you to feel as though life
is an endless series of projects within projects. Overcoming project and task
management stumbling blocks and hurdles for those who find themselves in charge
of a project but have no clue where to start or how to balance the project with
their other work is a difficult and daunting task. It can be even more difficult
if you’re not a project manager by trade or profession.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Have you fallen into the recurring role of
being the “go to” person for special projects?
- Are your daily plans often sidetracked and
derailed by additional, unexpected duties, assignments, projects and
- Are you finding that work is an ongoing series
of tasks and deadlines?
- Are you often faced with where to start when
every task is a "top priority”?
- Do you often feel like a professional juggler,
juggling time, tasks and resources?
- Do you find yourself spending hours planning
projects, gathering resources, engaging teams, monitoring and assuring
progress and reporting on results to other people?
- Are you a business professional where project
management is a secondary responsibility but you’re often asked to manage
extensive tasks and assignments?
- Have you been assigned a new task and just
don’t know where or how to start?
- Do you need guidance in grasping the basics of
project management best practices?
Whether you've found yourself in charge of a project for the first time and
don’t know where to begin or you’re encountering a difficult series of tasks and
feeling overwhelmed, The Accidental Project Manager will provide essential
project management basics and essential elements that will remove stress and
yield success. In a field bombarded with overly complicated frameworks, theories
and process models, this webinar is a straightforward project management course
for beginners who find themselves in charge of a project but are unfamiliar with
the steps towards making it come together or those who find themselves feeling
overwhelmed by an onset of multiple projects, tasks, assignments and
