This program presents concrete steps to improve your project management skills. Participants will learn to manage the critical project management role helping deliver learning and performance solutions that better support their business goals.
We all have good intentions, but once we start a new training project along with all the other projects we've got going, the projects can take a life of their own. In this workshop, developed in partnership with Russell Martin & Associates, participants will learn how to better manage the critical project management role that helps us deliver learning and performance solutions in a way that supports business goals. The workshop provides concrete steps to improve project management skills and a method that is repeatable yet flexible.
