Challenge & Solution
Today’s knowledge workers have quietly slipped into the role of the unofficial project manager. Stakeholders, scope creep, no formal training, and a lack of process all combine to raise the probability of project failure costing organizations time, money, and employee morale.
FranklinCovey's Project Management Essentials for the Unofficial Project Manager will help participants consistently complete projects successfully by teaching them to implement a disciplined process to execute projects and to master informal authority.
The unique points
A unique solution focuses on the “unofficial project manager” who need to use the “soft power” rather than the official authority to make impacts and lead team to achieve assigned project’s goals.
The framework is accredited by the Project Management Institute, the global organization that set industry standards for project management.
The deliverables addresses both the technical process and the people skill required to achieve project success.
The integrated benchmark allows participants apprise the current project management skill levels of their team and the re-benchmark enables them to track progress and identify areas where practice and coaching need to be applied.
A well-designed 5-Week Quickstart with implementation tools ensures that the learning is continued and new skillsets are developed.
