Turning great ideas into finished projects requires more than good intentions. Utilizing the principles and strategies of project management ensures that a team’s goals are reached on time and within budget. While some may assume being a project manager requires a highly technological skill set or managerial title, it can in fact be learned and carried out by anyone with strong communication and organizational skills. This workshop focuses on the foundations of project management, including the role of a project manager, the life cycle of a project, and an overview of popular project management methodologies that suit a range of organizations and teams.
