The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Project Managers
Date(s) - 10/22/2019
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Too often Project Leaders and Managers fall into the role due to demonstrated technical competence. After all, if you’re competent enough to create great technical output, certainly you can figure out how to run a project on schedule and within budget, right? And even when you get an opportunity to attend training to become a better Project Manager, the focus is on the “hard” or technical aspects of project management rather than the “soft” skills or habits that typically only come with experience.
Using the late Stephen Covey’s framework for “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®”, this webinar will help attendees to better understand important behaviors, tips, and tricks to ensure project success.
Why should you Attend:
- Do your projects often feel more like a task list than an integrated workflow?
- Do you often feel like your project schedule has been hijacked by task owners?
- Is your project status monitored rather than measured?
- If there was one thing to get right that would guarantee project success, would you know what it is?
- Are you assuring quality in your project’s deliverables or assessing it after the fact?
- Do you often feel like Management doesn’t understand what you’re trying to tell them about project status?
- Are you treating project management as a profession or a hobby?
Areas Covered in the Session:
- Treating the project plan as a system rather than a to-do-list
- Maintaining control of your project’s “float” to effectively manage schedule variance
- Quantitative methods for measuring and communicating project status
- Focusing on the one thing that must be done before everything else to ensure project success
- Integrating quality management with project management
- Learning how to talk to Management about project status and have them actually understand it
- Taking project management seriously as a full-time role rather than just being something else to take care of
