Franklin Covey Project Management Training

Challenge

' It’s safe to say that many organizations today face out-of-control costs brought on by projects that are past deadline, over budget, and that require more resources than originally projected. Even worse, some projects aren’t fully aligned with the organization’s top goals and priorities. Sound project management skills cannot be left to chance. Imagine how truly effective your organization would be if critical projects were in sync with your top goals, and then executed in the most effective and efficient ways possible.

Solution

The FranklinCovey project management workshops teach a four-step process for skillfully managing projects large or small: Visualize, Plan, Implement, and Close. This proven approach helps project managers and their teams craft and deliver high-quality projects on time and within budget. If developed and applied effectively to each project in your organization, skillful project management can mean the difference between mediocre and phenomenal results.

About the Workshop

This project management workshop is taught as a sixteen hour facilitator-led process, and encourages attendees to focus on their own current projects for a truly hands-on experience. The training is ideal for project managers and coordinators who work on more complex projects and whose jobs are increasing in responsibility. Participants will: 1) process the projects they bring to the workshop; 2) analyze complex projects using additional resources such as Gantt charts and project-initiation tools; 3) learn to balance constraints like time, schedule, and resources; 4) identify ways to control and track communication; and 5) analyze project-related risks and create a “hotspots” plan.
