Almost everyone manages projects at some point, but not every project requires the use of heavy-duty tools such as critical path schedules, earned value analysis, or detailed progress tracking. This six-hour class consists of narrated lessons with slides, as well as a workbook that allows you to develop a plan that is simple to understand and execute. The plan you develop will allow you to identify all of your project's stakeholders, develop a clear outcome statement that will help assure the end result you are after, and help you identify things that could go wrong that might cost you time, money, or lead to failure. It will put you in charge and give you a way to assess your progress so that there are no loose ends and no surprises at the end.
This course is intended for people who are managing small projects that involve no more than a few people and do not require a highly detailed project plan. It is NOT suitable for managers of large, complex projects; however, it is ideal for executives who are managing strategic initiatives or individuals who need a rudimentary plan for a small project (either professional or personal).
