1 Day workshops

In order to become successful as a project manager you must manage the major four fundamental areas of a project: resources, time, money, and scope. Each is interconnected, and each must be handled effectively for a project to be completion as requested in content and on time. So what skills are required for a person to be a successful project manager? Communication, listening and gathering customer/user/departmental inputs, simplifying complex issues, preparing brief for executives, preparing complex technical reports, the ability to influence people to get things done, and negotiation skills are just a few skills you must have if you wish to be professional as a project manager. This workshop will help you build the skills necessary to be an effective, respected project manager.
