Managing the People-side of Multiple Projects and Priorities
12 PDUs / contact hours
In this workshop, you will experience and dissect a successful project climate and learn to create the foundation for it. You will learn to recognize the warning signs and symptoms of project teams that need attention and to resolve many of the situations that adversely impact projects. Project environments are often complex, and the need to deal with people is a large – but sometimes overlooked – part of the challenge of managing them. In our exploration of the process of working in projects, we learn about team dynamics, complacency, and conflict. We identify ways of getting and keeping support for your project and dealing with changes, all the while attempting to produce results and respecting the triple constraint that guides good project management.
Prerequisites: participants must have taken the Comprehensive Project Management Basics workshop (formerly titled Project Management) or equivalent.
This workshop is recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® and as such will provide 12 PDUs (Professional Development Units) / contact hours towards attaining or maintaining the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation.
Professional Development Units are allocated according to the number of training hours completed by the student and may be granted by increments of 0.25 PDU for each 15 minutes of training. A participation certificate will be given to students who attend a minimum of 90% of the course.
