"It's the people - not the work - that cause most projects to fail."Would you agree with that statement? Research focused on business and project failure does: multiple studies show that less than half of all organizational efforts fully fulfill their scope, schedule and budget requirements. And this failure is most often attributed not to lack of technical skill or experience but to lack of agreement between the people involved. The ability to reach consensus between project team members and stakeholders is a critical factor of an organization's - and manager's success.This two-day workshop is designed to help participants:Identify project stakeholders and their expectationsPractice techniques to help stakeholders identify and agree upon project goalsManage stakeholder expectations with effective communications techniques.The workshop uses a case study throughout both days that provides the opportunity for participants to employ the skills and methods they are learning. The combination of participant activity and instructor presentation is designed to provide a rich learning experience that will enable participants to leave the workshop with skills they can immediately make use of on their own projects.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
