It’s safe to say that many organizations today face out-of-control costs brought on by projects that are past deadline, over budget, and that require more resources than originally projected. Even worse, some projects aren’t fully aligned with the organization’s top goals and priorities. Sound project management skills cannot be left to chance. Imagine how truly effective your organization would be if critical projects were in sync with your top goals, and then executed in the most effective and efficient ways possible.
The FranklinCovey Project Management workshops teach a four-step process for skillfully managing projects large or small: Visualize, Plan, Implement, and Close. This proven approach helps project managers and their teams craft and deliver high-quality projects on time and within budget. If developed and applied effectively to each project in your organization, skillful project management can mean the difference between mediocre and phenomenal results.
About the Course
This workshop is taught as a one-day, facilitator-led process, and encourages attendees to focus on their own current projects for a truly hands-on experience. The one-day training is ideal for those with no previous project management training, as well as those who are taking on an increasing number of project-oriented assignments. Workshop participants learn how to: 1) develop a smart project plan; 2) execute the right tasks at the right time, thereby decreasing project costs; 3) obtain and strengthen buy-in from team members and stakeholders; and 4) learn how to recognize potential problems and issues, allowing an opportunity to course-correct.
