We will be spending the day learning practical applications to asses a project and develop a recovery plan in 'real life' scenarios. For instance, how to get projects, months behind, back on track, to release it and immediately convert it to work with a brand new ERP system that goes live within 8-weeks, MUST work and is plagued by technical, sponsorship, governance issues. Just to name a few.
Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
