MGTSK - Skill Development module

Project Management (For Management & Excluded)

Duration: 1 days
Target population: All staff members in management and excluded positions
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
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; and

• Understand how a project management tool (ex: Microsoft Project) may help him/her fulfill this role.
