Course Description

We live in a project-based world. The vast majority of people working on project-based work take up the role without even realizing it and before long, they’re fighting an uphill battle.

Deadlines are missed and budgets are surpassed. If you’ve ever been in this situation, you know how stressful this can get.

Research shows that a whopping 45% of projects are either canceled, delivered late, or don’t even meet their original goals!!

The fact of the matter is that current project-management processes are inadequate. Many projects fail, and many project managers fail to deliver their promised results.

You are already doing more than you thought possible, and this “extra” assignment comes.

Using the skills learnt in this interactive webinar, instead of being overwhelmed, you will set the work up as a project, manage it using an approach with a track record of success, and get the results your management requires.

Rebecca Reinstein, a Ph.D. in organizational development, author, and executive Coach, cuts through the noise and shows you exactly what the deficiencies are in traditional approaches – and how you can start avoiding them.

Participants will:

  • Hone your existing skills and build on them.
  • Apply what you learn to the rest of your assignment, becoming more productive, and still have time to think about how to improve the overall performance of your area of responsibility.
  • You do not have to reinvent the wheel or rely on a “To-Do” list to get the desired results.
  • You’ll have access to resources that you can adapt to your specific situation.

Why you should attend

Traditional approaches to strategic planning and project management are inadequate and can lead to the failure of a project or even an entire business!!

You will get better results as you begin using essential project management skills and tools. However, more than these basics is needed for continued success.

You must continually improve your existing skills in project management, communication, understanding human nature, and working across organizational lines.

You will have new challenges the more you lead successful projects.

You will need to dive deeper into current project management standards and learn to use more sophisticated tools. This can be overwhelming on top of your many responsibilities and priorities.

You need to develop a plan to systematically integrate new skills and tools and use references for your continuous improvement and expand your capacity to balance day-to-day work and these special assignments.

Join Rebecca Reinstein in this interactive webinar to:

  • Recognize the “business problem” before the project begins
  • Organize tasks easily into logical groups of activities
  • Create a project plan to guide all your efforts
  • “Manage” your project “team” even if you don’t have one
  • Keep critical stakeholders informed and involved
  • Track progress and recognize quickly when things are slipping
  • Lead effective project meetings
  • Demonstrate successful project completion
  • Apply lessons learned to the next project
  • Hone organizational skills
  • Communicate even more effectively
  • Avoid major project pitfalls
