Project Management for the Accidental Project Manager—A Basic “How-to” Approach
Have you recently fallen into the role of a project manager?
When you suddenly find yourself responsible for managing an important project but are unfamiliar with the “science” of making it happen, you’re an accidental project manager.
The good news is that you can achieve success without being an expert on the subtleties of project management (PM)—you just need to have some basic tools and procedures, as well as the confidence to apply them properly.
You’ll find this webinar helpful as it lays out the basic elements that ALL project managers need to know, puts them into a workflow based on industry best practices, provides “how-to” examples, and explores a number of practical, no-nonsense techniques that will help you keep things running smoothly.
Good project management requires the PM to capture and track a lot of data and subsequently turn that data into information. Having the right stuff in your "toolbox" will increase your efficiency and effectiveness at every turn.
