Course overview

In our continued efforts to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

We’ve broken the content down into 7 key steps.

1. Share the key features of defining a project

Project management skills are incredibly valuable.

That’s because project management skills can help your audience meet and exceed the expectations of all customers and employers.

Want to dive in?

Start with defining what a project is. Next, use the content to examine the key characteristics of all successful projects

Make sure that you are always keeping a close eye on the needs of your audience. This will make them feel more connected. It will show that you care about their learning and how they can build more practical skills.

2. Connect your audience to key roles and responsibilities

Nearly all projects need people to complete them.

And when people come together, they need to know what they are doing.

Will everyone knows what they are doing? Has everyone been allocated the most appropriate role?

And, do people know what responsibilities they have?

This section explore the key responsibilities of the following project management roles:

  • Project team.
  • Team structure.
  • Project steering committee.
  • Sponsor.
  • Leader/manager.
  • Finance administrator.
  • Communication administrator.
  • Documentation administrator.
  • Schedule administrator.
  • Support systems administrator.
  • Quality administrator.

3. Focus on the main phases of a project

Picture your audience starting a project.

But, do they understand what are the main phases of a project?

Not yet?

That’s OK, you can use the content provided to:

  • Explore the key phases of initiation with your audience.
  • Discuss planning tasks, and generating expert advice.
  • Highlight tasks (the network diagram).
  • Explore critical aspects like Critical Path and resources.
  • Focus on milestones.

If you know what exactly your audience is looking to learn, your presentation will better serve their need. Your content will be received better. They will also develop increased levels of awareness.

4. Explain the schedule

Keeping in mind what your audience is looking to learn will help you visualize this part of the course.

That’s it.

Use the content to share business-critical aspects like project budget, budget sections, and budget variance.

Remember, your audience is looking for content that will make a difference in their lives. They’re seeking improvement. So, bring them to that space. Hook them with great content.

5. Teaching your audience about planning and contingency

The biggest problem for most porjects is weak planning. To avoid poor planning, use the content to:

  • Explore how to manage expectations.
  • Discuss how to check the plan.
  • Share insights on crucial project management areas like execution and documentation.

6. Inspire them about monitoring and controlling projects

Yes, we’ve all heard that strong project management skills require a lot more than just simple plans and schedules.

Sounds complicated?

It really isn’t.

After all, experts will always tell you how project metrics and change control will help to achieve project closure.

Make a start by using the content to convey the essential habits of monitoring and control.

7. Let people understand why some projects fail

Projects fail all the time.

This is a fact.

And, it’s normal.

In fact, none of us can control everything that happens in our lives.

But, we can learn from experience.

Use the material provided to discuss some of the reasons why some projects are not successful.

To foster more engagement, incorporate examples from your own experiences with project management.

When you show your experience and connect with your audience emotionally, they’re more likely to stay engaged with your content.

What our customers say

The Oak materials have provided us with an enormously useful package that has expanded our capacity to address the needs of leaders and emerging leaders, especially in the field of education, where there is a dearth of training opportunities in the skills and techniques of leadership and management. I can report that I have used them in a re-developed format when coaching new and early-stage educational leaders as well as at a 2-day symposium for the same levels of leadership. The response from these people has been enthusiastic and grateful for the insights provided.
