Conference Description:

Course "Project Management for Non-Project Managers" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.


This two-day seminar will begin by laying the foundation for the subject by first defining what a project is and then discussing the unique roles that the project manager must assume along the length of any project. The Triple Constraint, the most fundamental of project management principles, will be explained in detail with examples and tools provided that can be used to integrate the principle into any project management process.
Each stage of project management - Initiate, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling and Closing will be detailed. Activities highlighting each step of the process and key concept will be presented giving participants an opportunity to practice their newly learned skills.
Day two of the webinar will be mostly devoted to project planning and scheduling. Participants will be able to develop network diagrams and schedules for a fictitious project that will carry through to the end of the seminar incorporating each new concept presented.
Team development, the most critical and overlooked component of any project, will be discussed in depth emphasizing the importance of the human element in the execution of any project.
The seminar will end with the discussion of another often overlooked and neglected component of any project - the project close.

Why should you attend

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. This seminar will arm the new project manager with the tools to begin an effective project management process and the ability to apply that process to the projects to which they have been assigned.
