Edmonton: Project Management 101 for Learning Professionals

Edmonton: Project Management 101 for Learning Professionals
Many learning professionals deal with projects that are of short duration, sometimes less than six months, - too big to manage successfully with just a task list on a tablet and too small to benefit from the full array of rigorous, formal project management techniques.

This interactive workshop is designed to provide participants with knowledge and practice that provides planning without overkill, and control without being cumbersome.

Using a training focused case study we will focus on five key areas related to managing projects: Initiating, Planning, Execution, Monitoring & Controlling, and Closing. 


Participants will
- Determine project constraints and the impact on the project
- Discuss questions to consider when planning for a project
- Assess how to plan and sequence deliverables
- Apply risk management in the context of managing learning projects–so they don’t go ‘off the rails’!
- Overview a change control process to manage changes and expectations throughout the project
