Seminar Description

Topics: Project Management/Business Analysis

Sub-Topics: Complexity, Decision-Making Techniques, Project Management

Managing a project is a challenge unto itself.  But what happens when you’re called upon to manage 3, 4 or even a dozen projects?  The dynamics change, and your management approach should as well.
Managing Multiple Projects provides you with the insight on how to manage your own portfolio of projects, whether they’re all components of the same program or represent a disparate set of prospects from different quarters within your organization. This seminar affords you a hands-on opportunity to work through the mechanical and strategic issues associated with dealing with a host of projects that all seem to clamor for your time and attention. 
Many of us tend to respond most quickly (and effectively) to the “squeaky wheels” within the organization and as a result, more important projects may suffer. Learn specific ways to wield more authority in terms of setting priorities. Participants will explore ways to leverage those priorities to have more intelligent conversations with management and to build a better understanding of why we work on what we work on.
From a mechanical perspective, the session also provides the opportunity to develop more consistent structures for project planning, including the three most common foibles managers make when they construct work breakdown structures.  In the process of fixing the WBS, you’ll also learn how to leverage opportunities across projects and to conduct more effective cross-project analyses.

What You Will Learn

Your seminar experience will cover:
  • The distinctions between multiple projects in programs and multiple projects serving different owners
  • The process for identifying stakeholder objectives as well as project objectives
  • The means to leverage objectives from one project into the next to create a true environment where it’s possible to work “smarter, not harder”
  • The mechanics of building smarter WBS that can be leveraged from one project to the next and that will allow for cross-project analyses
  • The keys to setting priorities and communicating them within the organization
  • Ongoing 24-hour e-mail support after the workshop to ensure you have the coaching necessary to make the learning real within your projects
