Project management training is usually targeted at project managers and other senior project professionals. But what about company executives? The project sponsor and other senior executives need some knowledge of formal project management as well – for two reasons. First, executives must understand the terminology and concepts that the rest of the staff is learning so that they can communicate intelligently. Second, they must understand the role they play in ensuring that the project management processes are implemented successfully in their organizations. It’s not just about project managers. All of the management hierarchy has a role to play in ensuring their organizations successfully implement the project management discipline.
Do your senior executives require five days of training to get the proper level of understanding? No, they don’t need that level of detail. This class provides this high-level overview of project management concepts and the role of executive management in a fast-paced half day session.
Through an intensive real-world, project scenario, this training course provides you with complex project management techniques, the knowledge to understand and communicate project complexity, and a toolkit of templates and productivity tools that will help you back at work as you make recommendations and decisions throughout a project lifecycle.
