Project Management – The People
This highly interactive workshop examines the importance of involving the right people in the planning process, uses tools like the power/influence matrix to determine the communication strategy and discusses ways of managing a project alongside the day job. Many managers find themselves given the responsibility for a major, strategically important project whilst having to continue to run their department.
The workshop also looks at the personal skills and attributes required to successfully lead and manage a major project. There may be the need to look at the balance between the management and leadership responsibilities of the Project Manager and the way in which these change during the life-cycle of the project.
This course is run to suit your organisation as required.
