|ABOUT THE COURSE:|
What do you do? Here is a common scenario. You are three years out of college in your first engineering job. You are sitting in a meeting about the introduction of a new packaging line in your pharmaceutical plant. You are half listening to the presentation while thinking about some of the other work you need to complete on different matters. The installation will take a year to execute and will require the coordination with several functions inside and outside of the company.
Suddenly the Director of Engineering turns to you and says "Allison, this would be a great first opportunity for you to manage a very interesting project. Let's meet tomorrow and discuss your initial plans for getting started."
This is an all-too-common occurrence in today's business environment. Today more than ever before the job titles that we hold are not entirely reflective of the work that we do. Global teams and collaboration often place those in positions of team leadership that have the least foundation to manage all facets of complex projects. Project management requires specific knowledge of the key project facets that must be carefully managed. The interactions across divergent corporate functions, culture, language, and time zones all pose unique challenges to the new project manager.
|WHO SHOULD ATTEND:|
Any member of a cross functional project team:
This course crosses all industries and functions it is however particularly suited for the health sciences and other regulated industries where much project-based work is accomplished. The types of industries that are targeted include:
Unfortunately, project management is not a subject given much attention in college and university these days. The answer? Get some training - some basic understandable project management training that will provide you with a solid foundation for managing that first project or to simply sharpen existing project management skills.
It is not just important to learn about project management – project management has its own body of knowledge – its own set of standards that all project managers follow called the Project Management Body of Knowledge. Any valuable training must teach/present the content comprising this Body of Knowledge.
This curriculum will take the novice first-time project manager from having no clue about the project management process to preparing and managing the project plan and controlling all aspects of the project critical to its success. This curriculum will also serve the professional that has managed projects before but has had a difficult time doing so.
