Training Overview

Is your project stuck? Learn the project management essentials for higher ed.

As the academic year starts, it’s an ideal time to consider the ambitious projects you have ahead of you.  Although you likely have high hopes for completing these projects, you should address possible pitfalls. Will they become stalled or stuck? Will your best-laid plans unravel once the project team meets?

You can use scope, schedule, and deliverable planning to create a shared purpose, marshal diverse stakeholders, and encourage project momentum. New communication techniques will enable you to triumph over common project challenges, from project initiation and planning to closing. Whether working with large teams or on smaller initiatives, knowledge of project management essentials will help you drive successful outcomes.
