A three-day certificate program in Implementing Project Management is the follow up to the Effective Project Management Program. The program is designed for project managers who have a solid grasp of basic project management, but are interested in the challenges tht result as the methodology is being introduced into an organization. The program directly links to the first program in the series, Effective Project Management.

The implementation challenges come in two related forms:

One is immediate to the project manager: How do you convert the course design into action in the workplace? Implementing Project Management examines selected factors, adding others of the participants’ choosing.

The second, and more extensive, set of challenges involves how the project manager gains acceptance for project management in the organization, and among his/her co-workers.

Program instructor Jim Milliken has provided management and communication consultations and trainings to business, industry and nonprofit organizations throughout the United States since 1986. His specialties include project management, in which he holds the PMP (Project Management Professional) certification.Consider the following classic scenario: You are responsible for organizing and managing a multifaceted activity involving people from differing specialties to create something new. Quality is essential, resources are limited and time is of the essence. This course provides the concepts, practices and skills required to manage such an enterprise. The process starts with examining the situation and organizing the team; moves through identifying tasks and estimating resources; and concludes with setting schedules, managing risks and completing a plan. Working in teams, participants will apply and extend their workplace expertise and integrate project management competencies.Contact Us
