Project Management Institute

Adapt, Adopt and Accomplish for Project Management Success with Lisa Hammer and David Newman - NEW

Description

Topics: Leadership Development | Complexity | Agile

PLEASE NOTE: This is a 14 PDU/1.4 CEU seminar. The PDU breakdown will be available soon.

It is an exciting time to be a Project Manager! The evolution of development lifecycles from traditional waterfall style scheduling to the dynamic methods of agile provide us with the tools we need to be successful in any environment.

To achieve and maintain that success requires the integration of tools and methods with processes and skills as well as a working understanding of your project development environment. Even then a careful application of interpersonal skills along with a certain finesse will be required to propel you and your team to greater and greater achievements.

This course will help you understand the differences between the myriad approaches to project management so that you can select the lifecycle that is right for your next project in your environment. Through interactive exercises you will gain experience in the application of methods and principles that are immediately applicable to solve on-going project management challenges. Through discussions with experienced project managers you will be able to untangle the complex web of interpersonal behaviors that may be impeding your progress and most importantly, you will come away enthused and excited to take your project team to the next level!

What You Will Learn

  • Be able to understand and explain the current best practices of project management so that these methods can be immediately applied to improve project success.
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the interpersonal and soft skills required to successfully navigate and negotiate project management and resource utilization goals.
