Working in Project Teams
6 PDUs / contact hours
You are usually selected as a project team member because you have the particular skills and expertise required to complete the project. Fulfilling your role includes successfully performing the tasks you have been allocated while keeping the project manager informed of progress, risks and problems.
Often you must work on the project on your own initiative in your role as an expert and manage your own day-to-day work. This workshop is designed to help you develop the skills you need to contribute effectively on a project team. We will review the principles of project management to provide a context for understanding why certain things get done. We will practice essential tasks such as estimating and use standard tools. Particular attention will be placed on your role in areas such as assessing risks, resolving issues, tracking progress, and managing changes to project baselines. We will also address the interpersonal and team building skills required to contribute positively to a project team.
The information provided can be immediately applied to any project in any industry or organization.
