Project Management for Non-Project Managers
(Highly interactive workshop, learning and applying how to manage ‘day-to-day’ projects)
Project Management has proven its value across almost every industry and business sector. This in turn led to excessive and unnecessary emphasis on project management certification. To manage the small or simple ‘day-to-day’ project, we only need proper project management thinking and simplified approach to apply the concepts.
What does “day-to-day projects” mean?
Day-to-day projects are projects that requires a few weeks or months to complete and only require a few resources. Many internal projects could fit this category. Examples of these projects are a marketing campaign for a small & medium organization; a learning program for a business unit; writing and publishing a book; awareness campaigns; customers’ surveys; or a new financial process. We typically assign these projects to functional or professionals who are not trained as project managers (accidental project managers), and will handle this project as a part time work along with their normal duties.
The Project Management for Non-Project Managers workshop is an ideal workshop for those who are anxious and interested in learning how to take the first steps in their project management practices. The workshop allows the participants to gain excellent understanding of a simplified model, CAMMP™, which is in alignment with global standards.
