Course Overview

Project management training is usually targeted to project managers and other senior project professionals. But what about company managers? The project sponsor and other senior managers need some knowledge of formal project management as well - for two reasons. First, managers must understand the terminology and concepts that the rest of the staff is learning so that they can communicate intelligently. Second, managers 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 managers need to attend 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 management in a fast-paced 1 day session.
