A collaborative leadership workshop for anyone tasked with leading projects or initiatives and trying to ensure high performance collaboration.
Project management is a well-known tool of the business world and part of a management system that every business or organization needs in order to bring ideas into reality. Good project management defines whether or not you will be successful in your work.
The tools of project management are simple—the difficulty lies in implementing them into the culture of the organization.
Sunbridge’s latest collaborative leadership workshop is a crash course in understanding the project management mindset and the process for successfully carrying a project through from beginning to end.
In this very down-to-earth workshop, we will look at and touch upon:
• The seven most important tools inherent in project management (with time given to practice some of them)
• The role of direction, alignment, and commitment in the project management process
• How to instill a project management mindset and skills in both the practical habits of an organization as well as its social and ideal realms
• The project management steps essential for bringing ideas into fruition and completion
You are encouraged to bring with you a project or initiative that you are currently involved in or would like to bring to your community, to work on here.
