Do you know that 90% of a project manager’s time is spent communicating? No wonder communication is a challenge at every company! We will provide you with simple, easy-to-use tools to immediately improve your project communication.
What is scope creep anyway? Generally, it means adding work, features, or functions that weren’t originally planned. One of the biggest causes of scope creep is incomplete scoping and requirements gathering. We ensure that project managers get the proper training to have complete, clear, and agreed upon project and product scope.
Unfortunately, being “resource limited” will be a trend in the foreseeable future for most businesses as boomers retire leaving a gap in both experience and volume of workers. We will show you how to properly allocate resources to plan for your specific work environment and projects.
Unrealistic deadlines is perhaps the biggest complaint that project managers have. It’s not surprising considering that often times, deadlines are set prior to understanding the scope of the project. Schedule development is both art and science; we teach both to equip you to negotiate timelines and use schedule compression techniques to meet those deadlines!
This particular challenge is often the outcome of the previous four. When communication is poor, scopes creep, resources are limited, and timelines are unrealistic, project managers may get overwhelmed with conflicting priorities. We give you planning tools to clarify your priorities and have difficult conversations with various stakeholders.
