Welcome to the Project Management workshop. In the past few decades, organizations have discovered something incredible: the principles that have been used to create enormous successes in large projects can be applied to projects of any size to create amazing success. As a result, many employees are expected to understand project management techniques and how to apply them to projects of any size.
This workshop will give participants an overview of the entire project management process, as well as key project management tools that they can use every day.
Now that we understand what we mean by projects, project management, and project managers, let’s look at some of the other concepts related to projects. This module will look at the Project Management Institute, a global project management group that publishes and promotes project management standards, and its core ideas.
The first phase of project management is initiation. This is where the project starts to take shape. Stakeholders and team members work together to identify wants and needs, and then the project team creates a plan to accomplish the objectives with the time and budget available. This module will explore the first part of that process: identifying what success will look like for your particular project.
Once you have an idea of who your stakeholders are and what the project will achieve, it’s time to put it all in writing. This module will look at four key project documents: the statement of work, the project requirements document, the project planning worksheet, and the project charter.
Congratulations! With the completion of the SOW, planning worksheet, and project charter, the initiation phase is complete. Now it’s time to plan the nuts and bolts of your project.
When building your plan, remember:
·Everything in the plan is a prediction.
·The only fact that you know for certain is that your plan is definitely not 100% right.
·Contingency needs to be built in to cope with the uncertainty.
The next part of the planning phase is to bring together the nuts and bolts information that we have gathered (the tasks to be performed, plus the time, resources, and costs required for each) and to create an actual plan for executing the project.
In the last module, we looked at how to build a schedule in table format. This format will work well for small projects. However, for more complex projects, you will need additional tools. This module will explore four of the most popular tools, including graphical methods and Microsoft Project.
We have spent a lot of time talking about what the project will do and making plans for how to do it. Finally, it is time to get to work and put our plans into action.
