Today's knowledge worker has quietly slipped into the role of the unofficial project manager. Competing stakeholder needs, scope creep, no formal training, and a lack of process all combine to raise the probability of project failure, costing organizations time and money, and affecting employee morale.
Project management isn't just about managing logistics and hoping that the team is ready to play to win. The skills of informal authority are more important that ever before, so team members are inspired to contribute to the project's success.
Franklin Covey's new workshop will help participants:
- consistently and successfully complete projects
- learn how to implement a disciplined process to execute projects
- understand how to master informal authority
People + Process = Success
This workshop fulfills one elective credit for Manager Orientation.
