Project Management (Training)
How can I manage my projects more efficiently?
Every day we manage more projects: Innovation projects, change projects, cooperation projects, optimisation projects, restructuring projects, investigation projects, certification projects, evaluation projects, … Most of the time, these endeavours include external partners that often are physically located on the other side of the globe.
We usually kick off these projects with energy and enthusiasm but at some point things get complicated or even grind to a halt. Communication, coordination, timings, responsibilities, decision or involvement issues arise. So how can we make sure that our projects will be completed on time and with the envisioned quality?
Each project phase comes with it’s own challenges, but on many occasions the root of the problem can be found in the initial planning. Or even before that, in the definition of the project and the involvement of stakeholders: The definition of specific objectives and priorities, the identification of key stakeholders, the roles and functions that will make it work out. As a result, the participating parties all have different ideas of how things are supposed to work instead of sharing one joint vision. And maybe the key stakeholder is not even in the team…
Our courses on project management focus on the different phases of projects and their specific challenges. Special attention is paid to the initial stage of specifying objectives, stakeholders, roles and responsibilities.
Depending on the specific necessities of the client and the type of projects worked on by participants, further key topics will be planning tools, prioritization, communication, time management or conflict management.
