Organizations are constantly developing new products, programs, and services to better serve their clients. They may need to streamline business processes, increase quality and customer satisfaction, or deal with increased competition. Good project management is often the solution for successful completion of these business and organizational requirements.
Most project management workshops are geared toward the relatively small number of people who want to become certified as a professional project manager. This workshop is designed for the far greater number of people who need to manage projects as part of their job.
Designed and delivered by a certified project manager, this course provides hands-on experience on using best-practice tools and techniques to plan and manage a project successfully and to the client's satisfaction. Strengths and weaknesses of software tools are also discussed.
This is a two-day workshop in Ottawa.
Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
