You may not think of yourself as a project manager, but at work or at home, if it takes more a few simple “to-dos,” it probably requires a plan. Professional project managers know that the planning phase largely determines the success or failure of any project. In fact, they say that one hour of planning can save 20-100 hours of execution!
You don’t need to be an expert to learn and apply some of the basic tools and techniques the professionals use to plan and break down even the biggest projects into manageable, sequential steps. In this class you’ll learn:
• The critical elements of planning
• The most important skills for managing projects at work
• How to analyze and prioritize the sequence of tasks
• How to create a timeline to keep the project on track
This is a basic class in a complex discipline. We’ll focus on the most important concepts you need to know to manage personal or professional projects, for yourself or with your team.
This is a great follow-up class to Mind Mapping. You’ll learn exactly how to get that idea into a detailed action plan.
