Maximize the Value of Your Project Investments

Most organizations spend substantial sums of money each year on projects. This is done on the assumption that projects will, upon their conclusion, provide a value of some importance to the organization. Unfortunately, this is not always the outcome. Not only is it common for projects to fail but there are also far too many instances where the project is completed but little or no value is gained. Losses of this kind are completely avoidable. We now understand not only how to manage projects so that delivery is a success, but tools and techniques are available that help management ensure that the right projects are chosen at the right time so that full value is realized. Management has much to gain by employing these proven approaches to project selection, execution, and oversight. Maximize the Value of Your Project Investments has been carefully designed to meet the training needs of a diverse management audience. Prospective attendees may have a wide range of interests, from ensuring that funded projects align with business needs to concern that projects are properly planned and executed. With this diverse audience in mind, this course integrates a range of topics that should be both interesting and valuable to all who attend. While based on current PMI standards, all topics are supplemented with field-proven best practices that are effective in any project setting.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
