Overview

Managing projects can be a daunting responsibility, as there are so many resources and steps to coordinate. Goals can be unclear in the beginning, and the scope can quickly creep into broad areas. This is the second of a two part series of workshops that completes the overview of the project management process, including best practices on managing through each stage in the project life cycle. There are also many helpful tools and resources that support successful project planning and implementation that are provided in this highly interactive session.

Objectives

  • Review of the first two phases of the project management life cycle from Part I of the 2 part series: Initiation and Planning.
  • Begin with the second half of the planning phase and continue to understand best practices for executing a project including creating deliverables, monitoring and controlling and conducting phase reviews.
  • Gain tools for documenting, measuring and tracking project requirements, evaluations, and outcomes.
  • Finish with a review of project completion enabling the attendee to now take a project from initiation to closure.
