Workshop Overview

This workshop provides foundational learning in what it takes to manage projects successfully. Instruction is focused on application of a tested, proven, and repeatable process for managing projects from concept to successful delivery.

The hallmark of this workshop is its practical, hands-on instruction. The workshop is highly interactive, offering classroom exercises for each major topic. Work is guided by a series of templates that are used not only in the classroom, but are an essential element in deployment and use of the presented best known methods in the workplace.

The “take-away” content of this workshop is high. Students will not only understand the principles and practices that make for successful projects, they will know how to apply those principles and practices in the workplace.
