In today's world, many operations once performed by specialists are assigned to other professionals as 'projects'. However, few professionals receive training or tools to help them manage projects efficiently and effectively. The 'project' is added to an already full schedule, major decisions have been made elsewhere, and you often have no 'team' to carry out the work. As a result of this topic, Non-Project Managers will be able to plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time and on budget. Many projects fail because they have no focusing definition. Non-Project Managers will be able to create a business problem statement to prevent scope creep and put all effort into solving the problem. You will define potential risks and determine which ones will require contingency plans. You will learn to use simple tools to manage projects of any size and provide stakeholders with the results they expect.
