Project Management Essentials - 1 day programs

Projects need not be filled with anxiety, stress, worry and fear. While this notion is indeed logical; too many project manager’s manage without a few simple best practices that, when followed, bring about an enjoyable and nearly stress free executing of the project. It starts with project selection, building a plan, executing the plan and closing. It’s that simple. Will changes come? Definitely! Do we have a plan set up to handle those changes and risks that come to fruition? Definitely!

Our program identifies the key reasons for project stress and fear, and the tools, techniques and process that will mitigate or eliminate them.

Let’s start enjoying our projects and avoid all those. “Well, now what?” moments. You’ve heard “Work smarter, not harder". Now, let us give you the tools to do just that.
