Project Management Leadership Essentials

ID : 21566   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Essentials Class addresses the people side of project management — jumping far beyond the basics of project management. You will focus on the human dimension in a project management environment and be able to distinguish between project management and project leadership. Project leadership involves the understanding and alignment to organizational strategy and vision. This course will discuss the strategic planning process at both the organizational and project level. In today’s matrix and cross-functional environments, project managers and team members often face the challenge of gaining commitment and cooperation of individuals outside their authority. You will gain knowledge about your own influencing style and how to improve your influence skills, especially in situations where you have no positional authority. You may also be required to frequently cooperate and communicate across functions, distance and cultures. Core skills for accomplishing this, and all the other topics, will be taught with case studies, exercises and discussion. Terminology, processes and definitions, where appropriate follow the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). (18 hours; Terms: Spring, TBD)
