Project management isn't just about managing logistics and hoping the project team is ready to play to win. The skills of "informal authority" (or of the unofficial project manager) are more important than ever before, so team members are inspired to contribute to project success!

Today's knowledge workers have quietly slipped into the role of the unofficial project manager. Stakeholders, scope creep, a lack of formal training, and an absence of processes all combine to raise the probability of project failure costing organizations time, money, and employee morale.

This three-day work session will help participants consistently complete projects successfully by teaching them to implement a disciplined process to execute projects and to master informal authority.

    • Foundation
