This course is for those managers who are faced with critical, high-risk projects and who face the need for a rapid introduction to the concepts of modern project management. It’s for those who have worried about meeting a deadline for a project or getting the support of outside organizations. It’s for those who want to meet the expectations of their managers or customers. It’s for those who didn’t get the results they wanted or who are concerned about new demands and challenges in a very competitive, high-stress business environment.

In this environment, organizations will have to hustle and scrape in an economy that will show them little mercy,
Project management is one of the best tools we can give managers for surviving and thriving in this environment. Though project management is not a magic bullet for success, I would not want to attempt to survive in the new economy or compete for business without that bullet in my gun. Solid project management skills won’t guarantee that managers will accomplish great and wonderful things, but having those skills will increase the probability that they will.
The skills that are embedded in modern project management are survival skills for the future that can be applied in virtually any endeavor that we might undertake. If those skills can be mastered, success will be more likely.
The objectives of this workshop are to:
