".IIR is able to recognise and develop new trends. The delivery of innovative case studies adds tremendous value to conferences. This gives delegates the perfect balance between theory and practice. I believe in its formula."

Professor Robert Kaplan
Harvard University


Today's knowledge workers have quietly slipped into the role of the unofficial project manager. Stakeholders, scope creep, no formal training, and a lack of process, all combine to raise the probability of project failure costing organizations time, money, and employee morale.

This course will help participants consistently complete projects successfully by teaching them to implement a disciplined process to execute projects and to master informal authority.

People + Process = Success
Project management isn't just about managing logistics and hoping the project team is ready to play to win. The skills of "informal authority" are more important than ever before, so team members are inspired to contribute to project success!

Project Management Essentials for the Unofficial Project Manager will provide the mind-set, skill set, and toolset that will consistently deliver successful projects to completion.
