Before the project actually begins, there are a series of actions that must be undertaken to set the stage and build the foundation for the more rigorous project management process to come.  These steps are essential to project success and include things such as building he Project Charter, establishing the Project Matrix, and writing the Project Scope Statement.

The Project Charter is your license to do business. It initiates the project for the project manager and provides the level of authority required to gather both consumable and non-consumable project resources. It is the document that gives approval for the project to proceed, based on the information it contains. The Charter and Project Scope Statement together are communication tools that provide the reader with a good grasp of what the project is about and answers the questions: What, why, how, who, when and how much.

The Priority Matrix is a simple but powerful tool that requires the project sponsors and stakeholders to agree upon the relative priorities of each of the three project constraints and to indicate any specific measurements that are associated with them. This tool is crucial to making decisions throughout the life of the project. Project Managers use this tool at the very beginning of the project to determine these priorities to guide corrective actions taken throughout the life of the project.

This webinar will explain the role of each document in the project management process and their importance to the project manager in the execution of his/her responsibilities.

Being a great project manager is in-part also about knowing people.  The people that you really need to know are your stakeholders.  Stakeholders are individuals and organizations that are actively involved in your project, or whose interest may be positively or negatively affected as a result of project execution or project completion.  Stakeholders are without question, the most important people in the project organization.  They define your success, they provide the resources you need to get the work done, they open doors and remove barriers.  The short of it, is that if you do not identify and manage the expectations of your stakeholders when you take on a project as its manager…..YOU WILL FAIL! It is as simple as that!

This webinar will walk you through the stakeholder analysis and the strategies that must be employed to manage your stakeholders effectively.
