Course overview

Defining a project – Project management skills are incredibly valuable. That’s because project management skills, in nearly every situation available, can help your audience meet and exceed the expectations of all customers and employers.

As project management skills need to be tangible, start the course by defining what a project is. If you want a fully engaged audience, use the material to examine the central characteristics of all successful projects. This awareness will ground your audience on the primary skills that are required.

Roles & responsibilities – Like any training course, there are areas like roles and responsibilities that are essential for success.

Use the content to discuss the following roles:

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

Phases – When it comes to project management skills that drive results, there’s magic. Every situation has different options that require different solutions. Typically, most experts apply solutions that follow distinct phases. Use the content provided to explore the key phases of initiation with your audience.

It’s one thing to want to develop project management skills, but it’s another thing entirely actually to start using these skills. With the help of the content provided, explore planning tasks, and generating expert advice. Keep in mind the need to discuss tasks (the network diagram) and critical aspects like Critical Path and resources.

Perhaps one of the most important areas that your audience needs to understand is milestones. End this section by examining this crucial area.

The schedule – Practical content will keep your audience engaged with your delivery as the course progresses. You need to make sure that you offer personal experiences. Especially when you explore the project schedule. Consider adding a company or industry examples that will be memorable to your audience.

To improve learning, you need to reach out to your audience and use the content to share business-critical aspects like project budget, budget sections, and budget variance.

Planning & contingency – When it comes to planning, it makes sense to use the content to explore how to manage expectations, and how to check the plan. Use the content to share insights on crucial project management areas like execution and documentation.

Monitoring & controlling – Yes, we’ve all heard that strong project management skills require a lot more than just simply plans and schedules. After all, many experts will tell you of how project metrics and change control will help to achieve project closure.

When your audience is sitting there in front of you, you will need to convey the essential habits of monitoring and control. Use the content to make sure everything is meaningful for your audience.

Why some projects fail – None of us can control everything that happens in our lives. But, we can control how we talk about things and how we approach situations.

Rather than just believing that all projects succeed, experienced professionals take control by understanding that success and learning can emerge from failure.

To this end, use the material to discuss some of the reasons why some projects are not successful.

Read how real people are leading the way with our training material.

“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 shortage 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.”
