Course Detail: P_IMPPM - Implementing Project Management

This three-day workshop is designed for project managers who have a solid grasp of basic project management, but are interested in the challenges that result as the methodology is being introduced into an organization. The course directly links to the second course in the Certificate Series, Effective Project Management.

The implementation challenges come in two related forms.

One is immediate to the project manager: How do you convert the course design into action in the workplace? Implementing Project Management examines selected factors, adding others of the participants' choosing.

The second, and more extensive, set of challenges involves how the project manager gains acceptance for project management in the organization, and among his/her co-workers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Examine the causes of project implementation failure.
  • Determine how to effectively apply the planning and organizing activities of Effective Project Management.
  • Practice application of an Organizational Project Management Maturity Model.
  • Develop a persuasive presentation about project management.
  • Simulate question-answer handling of objections to project management.
Who Should Attend?

The third in the USM Project Management certificate, this course is designed to help project managers more fully integrate the discipline of project management into their organization. Quality is essential, resources are limited, and time is of the essence-a classic scenario. This course provides the concepts, practices, and skills required to face the common workplace project challenges and win. Aspiring project managers will get a good introduction to real project environments, new project managers will gain useful tools, and experienced project managers can use this class to optimize their work.
