Well-structured, cohesive teams reach the highest levels of success. Managing initiatives and cross-functional project teams adds new challenges, and this program focuses on the leadership aspects of project management. By planning, executing, and closing out projects appropriately, you provide the structure that will successfully move the team to project completion. Through activities, discussions, and examples from their own projects, you will practice using techniques and tools to implement during project planning processes at work.
This is the fifth of five programs in the Leading Effective Teams Certificate Series.
- Implement the stages of the project management process.
- Discuss the roles and responsibilities of the project manager.
- Demonstrate the process of project planning by using your own project examples.
- Facilitate effective stakeholder communication.
- Analyze the impact of change from project management outcomes.
