Event Overview
You’ve been asked to manage a project in your organization, but you have no project management experience or training.  Where do you start and just what does the Project Manager do – or not do?  In this hands-on workshop we’ll track the process of managing a project through its lifecycle, review tools and techniques along the way, and apply them to different cases. Using a standard project management framework we’ll help you bring structure and organization to your project, managing your team and the work that needs to be done, and communicating with your stakeholder to keep your project on track. Last, we’ll examine the interrelationship of project scope, cost, and schedule and their effect on the quality or success of your project.

Session Outcomes:
- Examine the role of the project manager and how a project management framework contributes to success across a variety of project types.
  - Develop a Project Brief that defines the project and guides project activities.
  - Discuss the activities associated with the phases of the project lifecycle.
  - Explore different project management tools and methodologies.
