This program is the foundation on which project management expertise is built.

Individuals who are responsible for managing people, tasks and assignments that need to be completed on time and on budget should attend. These workshops serve as an excellent foundation to pursue your PMP® Certification. Attend ALL five workshops to earn 3.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or 35 Professional Development Units (PDUs) - which meets the prerequisite as stated by PMI to apply for your Project Management Professional (PMP®) Exam.

Workshops include:

Back to Square One: Conceptualization Phase

We never seem to have the time to do it right, but we always have the time to do it over. Although often neglected, the highly critical project conceptualization phase sets the stage for success. During this phase, a project manager and team will establish a project’s value and communicate its scope by answering the what, why, how and how much of each project.

Planning for Success: Planning Phase

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. The planning stage of any project is crucial to its on-going progress and successful completion. Skip it at your own risk. Place your important project(s) “under the microscope” and perform a careful analysis of task order (who is doing what and when) so that – as a Project Manager – you can efficiently organize work flow, carefully assign resources, describe work assignments and precisely schedule resources and deliverables. 

Measure of Success: Execution Phase

Whether you’re a novice or an expert, even the best laid plans never go according to plan. As a Project Manager, you’ll find yourself clarifying ex­pectations, shuffling resources, changing targets, negotiating support, analyzing reports, adjusting budgets, sharing options (rather than problems) and communicating constantly. A well-planned project execution phase will allow you to avoid “scope creep,” manage the unexpected and keep your team on track.

Leadership for the Project Manager Part 1

This course will assist you in proactively taking swift action against the factors that trigger project trouble and subsequently avoid the distractions, delays and disruptions that so easily short-circuit our purpose, priorities and preparation. It is said that we are ready only according to the degree by which we have prepared. So stop “sweeping the dirt under the rug,” so to speak, and begin honestly assessing the heart of the matter in terms of proj­ect troubles and addressing the steps to project recovery and ultimately project success.

Leadership for the Project Manager Part 2

This course will assist you in proactively applying practical concepts and ethical principles of leadership in order to foster a project management environment that encourages transformation resulting in both individual and corporate growth; in it, you will discover and discuss the purpose of leadership models; identify the picture of sound leadership maturation; identify “The 32 Leadership for the Project Manager Ladder of Success™” as one model and examine how leaders become leaders, how/why they connect with people, how they get results, how they grow organizations and how they make their mark.
