Achieving Next-Level Project Leadership: Beyond the Essentials

Are you ready to move beyond the essentials and define your personal project leadership style? As your projects increase in complexity, it becomes harder to rely on cookie-cutter approaches and tools. Next-level Project Leaders learn to strategically apply and adopt best practices to the real world while remaining open to experimental and emerging practices.

This highly interactive masterclass leads participants through the process of constructing a personal project leadership philosophy and approach tailored to their individual style, industry, organization, and project environment. We’ll discuss emerging trends in the PM space as well as advanced tools and techniques related to strategic thinking, risk and assumptions management, stakeholder management and communication, and project controls.

Students will also gain a half-day immersive introduction to agile principles and approaches. Even if your organization has not adopted agile, participants will learn thought-provoking principles and practices to dramatically improve teamwork on traditional (waterfall) projects.

The curriculum assumes participants have a strong foundation in project management. It is highly recommended that participants have either previously completed Persimmon’s Surviving PM Fundamentals course or a similar level class.

Excellent course going beyond just the basics of project management. If you know the "notes" of PM, this will help you learn how to play "jazz" and be more adaptive.

The course was interesting and engaging. It challenged some of my current project management beliefs or habits, and helped provide ideas on how to improve and add to my skills.
