“Project Management – The Art and Science of Getting Things Done”

May 21, 2024 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. EST

 

Have you ever watched the Olympic Games’ opening ceremony and thought “how did they ever pull this off”?

 

The answer, (but not the task), is simple: a team, led by one or more Project Managers, utilized strong and effective Project Management skills to plan and achieve a complex and unique goal.

 

Project Management is the art and science of getting things done. Whether it is a difficult work assignment, a personal goal or vision, or the need to overcome a seemingly unsurmountable obstacle, there are tools and techniques to help you accomplish just about anything.

 

During this interactive Professional Development webinar our presenters will introduce participants to the practice of Project Management and how professional Project Managers plan and execute their projects. Everything is a project, and by utilizing the tools and techniques of Project Management, anyone can achieve challenging professional and personal objectives – on time, and on budget!

 

Topics covered will include:

  • A brief history of Project Management
  • Introduction to the Project Management Lifecycle
  • Discussion of the tools and techniques anyone can use to successfully plan and execute a project
