Effective project management depends on teams to carry out the project tasks. Projects are carried out through teams. Managing the people side of projects is often as challenging as mastering the technical aspects. Meeting project objectives is complicated by the development of virtual teams where members are geographically dispersed, increasingly diverse teams where members have different cultural backgrounds, and project stakeholders (e.g., clients, customers, etc.) with conflicting interests.
This two-day course covers alternative approaches to project management including tools and techniques that project managers can use. Topics such as communication, team selection, team dynamics, motivation, and leadership are covered. The participants develop an understanding of how and when to apply various project management techniques.
