Who should attend
This cohort is designed for anyone who leads projects or supports those who do. It’s ideal for project managers, project producers, emerging managers and anyone who wants to build a strong foundation in project management.
Success is always trending and great project management is the key to getting things done on time and on budget. Whether you’re learning new skills or brushing up on existing skills, our Project Management cohort is a timely program designed to take you to the next level.
Project Management cohort is a 5-week program (2-hour weekly learning sessions) of interactive workshops where you will acquire practical skills to initiate, plan, and run successful projects.
Project initiation and stakeholder mapping
Starting a project the right way can make or break an initiative. We all know that a good project manager is a good communicator, who works with and reports to the right people. In Week 1 we cover how to:
Project planning and establishing requirements
Once you’ve started a project, how do you determine what the final deliverables will really look like? How do you accurately estimate time and create a work schedule? How do you make sure you don’t miss things? Those are the questions we answer in this session as we cover:
Presenting and storytelling with data
Human beings naturally connect with stories, and decision makers need data to gain a full picture. Here, we merge presentation structures with data theory to create engaging presentations and reporting.
Risk management and post-mortem analysis
In this session, you’ll boost your adaptable problem-solving skills to the next level. You’ll learn the methods professionals use to uncover and mitigate problems before they ever happen, and how to address problems that do occur – so they won’t happen again. We’ll cover:
Final project presentations & graduation
We will review the key themes of the sessions and students will give a short “executive level” presentation about a project they’ve been planning. We’ll then celebrate!
A reunion session will be held after 3 months.
