Project Management Principles: Adaptable Approaches for Executing Projects (Of Any Size!)

You’ve been asked to run a project (or three) in addition to your day job. Or perhaps you’ve just been promoted to your first formal project management role. Whether you are a new, developing, or “accidental” project leader, you’re going to need a powerful, practical toolkit to deliver results. This highly interactive virtual course is an excellent non-academic introduction to project management for any professional who is managing critical business projects, no matter the job title or industry.

Through engaging discussion and exercises, participants will quickly learn an effective framework for executing business projects, plus powerful strategies to improve project results. While some theory will be conveyed, the emphasis will be on real-world application and practice.

You will learn how to:

  • Maximize the first 30 days of your project for better results
  • Choose a project execution rhythm that delivers consistent wins
  • Communicate project status in a way that builds stakeholder confidence
  • Anticipate risk and navigate issues that could derail your project
  • Speak PM “lingo” so you can confidently interact with other project management professionals

Our Training Commitment to You

While the “venue” may change for a season, our learning commitment to you does not.  We focus on providing you valuable insights and practical techniques in an engaging and interactive way.

Adapting current offerings as well as creating new ones, our instructors have leveraged virtual best practices to ensure the same high-quality learning experience that you expect from Persimmon.  A few key things to know:

  • The format is adapted for virtual learning.  We have modified our courses to be comprised of half-day learning modules (because none one wants to spend an entire day online!).  Where applicable, we’ve included additional exercises for individual learning beyond the scheduled class time.
  • Live instructors.  The same facilitators you have come to know and trust will be on the other side of the screen providing you with new insights and practical techniques.
  • Interactive and engaging.  We are leveraging technology best practices to create an engaging and interactive experience.

Your health and well-being is our first concern.  These virtual classes are offered to allow you to continue your professional development journey but within a safe environment.
