Project Management: From Idea to Implementation

Even the best project managers can benefit from this module on effective project management. People can generally be put into two categories: those that are process oriented (operations, systems and accounting people) and project oriented (the big picture type). But project management means getting tasks done, requiring both sets of skills. This module reinforces:
  • Systematic tracking techniques that keep projects running smoothly
  • Managing a project from idea to implementation
  • Using Gannt charts, flow charts and other analytical tools

AUDIENCE
Any employee given responsibility for overseeing that a project is completed on time and within budget.

This module can be presented in two to four hours, depending on participants' skill level and teaching objectives. The module includes:

  • Break out groups to solve team problems
  • Discussion on techniques for team development
  • Exercises and presentations
  • Practice sessions and role plays
COURSE MATERIALS
The participant's workbooks contain reference text and exercises, are bound and three hole punched. The module is divided into three sections, one for each phase of training: the Pre-Workshop Assignment, the Workshop Material, and the Post-Workshop Action Items. Participant's workbooks can be used for classroom instruction or on a self-paced basis.

The leader's guide contains the same material as the participant's workbook, with the addition of a section of introductory notes, answers to exercises and explanatory margin notes. The leader's notes contain tips and techniques on setting up and administering the session, checklists, and other teaching aids. Other beneficial components include:
  • A listing of suggested videos which complement the material.
  • Notes which highlight key points, provide tips for training, and detail competencies to be gained.
  • Margin Notes on the workshop materials which guide the leader through the material and indicate when to ask questions, encourage discussion, use flip charts, break into groups, and refer to specific material.
