Create a Plan: Project Management for Admins
Let’s face it – we are all managing projects every day!
They may be simple or more complex, but undoubtedly you are managing projects within your administrative role. You don’t need to be a project manager to learn how to manage your projects effectively and efficiently. This interactive presentation will provide the basics of managing projects – regardless of their size or complexity. Participants will be provided a variety of tools, techniques and best practices to enable them to more effectively manage the projects they are assigned and the projects they want to undertake, including how to socialize initiatives to get buy‐in.
Walk away from the presentation with a better understanding of how project management can assist you in performing your role as an administrator in your organization, along with best practices and techniques you can use immediately back on the job. All participants will be provided templates to use back on the job. Information will also be provided on the Project Management Institute (PMI) and project management certifications available through PMI.
