Practical Project Management for all (2 to 5 day Course) Drawn from original research and a new groundbreaking survey, Peter Taylor (author of Real Project Management – Kogan Page) will explore the key themes that need to be tackled head on: • Communication – modern day opportunity versus multiple tools • Virtuality – working with remote teams across multiple time zones and cultures • Time – delivering ‘more with less’, the pressures on the modern project manager • Sponsorship – how to work effectively with your project sponsor and what it means to be a project sponsor • Complexity – managing increased complexity of the project landscape • Lessons Learned – both learning, sharing and benefiting from project experiences Project Management is entering its fourth phase, the original was the organic development of project skills throughout history primarily through construction activities, the second was back in the mid-20th century and was focused on tools and process, the third at the end of the 20th century was about attitude and behaviour, the challenge of today is complexity and criticality. The ‘accidental’ project managers of the past are being replaced by a wave of young energetic educated in project management professionals who see the opportunities on offer but are hampered to a degree by a lack of any up to date and relevant guidance. All of the written advice is still based heavily on the second and third phases of project management development, and not on todays need. This workshop will address that and will hold a unique position in the marketplace as a result. It should be the ‘go-to’ reference workshop for the ‘NextGen’ project managers who are joining the workforce across the world, offering up examples of strategy to ensure that any ambitious project manager doesn’t end up with gaps in their personal portfolio of project management capability.
