Project Management for Teams

The Challenge
The project team is the engine that makes the project move. Every team gathers requirements, designs and builds the product and executes delivery to the customer. But truly effective teams do much more. They fine tune estimates to ensure that project budget and schedule are realistic. They help the customer to define quality and then build that quality into the product. They are intent on delivering accurate status reports. They understand the need to control scope, ensuring that all proposed changes get adequate review. They are the face of the project to the customer and carry the load of ensuring customer satisfaction. It is essential that all members of the project team understand the basic project management procedures at work in their project so that they can fully support them.

The Solution
This course helps project team members focus on the specific steps they can take to make their projects successful. Through a one day series of lectures and short exercises Project Management for Teams gives participants a much better understanding of why projects are structured and managed the way they are, and what they can do to have the greatest positive impact. Learning Objectives include:
  • What a project plan is and why it is important
  • How to provide meaningful estimates
  • Why it is important to manage customer expectations
  • How quality creates customer value
  • The importance of scope control and how to do it
  • Techniques for management of requirements
  • How to make communication within the project more effective
  • The importance of accurate status reports
  • How Lessons Learned can help the project team
Who should attend
This PM course is especially useful for project team members, managers and supervisors of business staff involved in projects and anyone involved in choosing, managing and mentoring project team members.
