How You Will Benefit

  • Learn the one critical question that all project leaders need ask at the beginning of any project that will help determine a project implementation approach, project cost, project schedule, and conflicts to expect throughout the project lifecycle
  • Practice and use a simple three-step framework to reach project success
  • Understand how the three steps are in alignment with more formal methodologies such as phase-based waterfall project management, agile project management, and continuous improvement activities such as Lean and Six Sigma.
  • Use and apply five streamlined tools and templates that can help a project of any size get done faster, lessen scope creep, and reduce project meeting fatigue. The tools are easy to understand and implement without any project management jargon
