LDP - Leadership Development Program

LDP Elective - Project Management

Duration: 8 days
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
***THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR MEMBERS OF THE LDP ONLY ***
Project management provides the means to enable individuals, teams and organizations to deliver on their commitments. Successful project delivery requires skills and training in project management. A META Group report study indicates that 77% of respondents point to lack of PM skills is the major issue in successfully delivering projects (PM Network, Aug 2004, pg 25). Our change agents can benefit from project management best practices and awareness of practices in various areas of the University.

This one-day workshop will provide project managers and participants in project teams:

o a generic “5-step” framework for managing projects. This framework is consistent with the worldwide “Project Management Institute Book of Knowledge”, and can be applied on any project.
o ability to “read” project environments, detecting and diagnosing barriers and roadblocks, and prepare strategies for moving their projects forward.
o skills and methods that they can apply at their workplaces immediately.
o a broad context of the subject, and potential avenues for continued learning.
