Project Management Excellence
This one-day course from the Kelley School of Business will show you why project management is a powerful vehicle for process improvement and cultural change across your entire organization.
Project management isn't just a scheduling activity; it's a means for organizational change.
While many courses explain the theory behind project management, few of them focus on demonstrating how real-world application can lead to more efficient, cross-functional workflows. Fewer still provide a clear course of action for changing the culture of an entire organization.
This one-day course will do both.
Learn from some of the most effective project management organizations in the world.
This course will introduce you to the same project management (PM) best practices that highly efficient PM organizations are using to run successful businesses. More important, it will give you an opportunity to apply those principles—and some amazing PM tools—to your own projects.
Come prepared to discuss a current or near-future project that you’re facing. By the end of the session, you’ll have made significant progress in initiating and planning your projects, as well as mapping an effective communication plan for managing stakeholders.
