|Project Management 1: The course includes a combination of lectures, demonstrations, and group work using real life case examples. Class size is limited to ensure a high level of interactivity. The workshop is designed to provide participants with: • A generic “5-step” framework for managing projects that is consistent with the worldwide “Project Management Institute Book of Knowledge”, and can be applied on any project; • The ability to “read” project environments, detect and diagnose barriers and roadblocks, and prepare strategies for moving their projects forward; • The skills and methods to apply at their workplaces immediately; • A broad context of the subject and potential avenues for continued learning. By the end of this course, participants will be able to: • Position projects and deadlines within a common “5-step” framework; • Quickly map out an action plan for moving a project forward, or getting a project back on track; • Use and adapt key templates and processes supporting the 5-step framework; • Understand the role and challenges of the “project manager” function; • Understand how a project management tool (ex: Microsoft Project) may help him/her fulfill this role.
