Projects are very different from ongoing operations because they are temporary in nature, have unique requirements, and achieve very specific output. People have led projects throughout history but, relatively speaking, it is only recently that the formal discipline of management has been applied to projects.
During the life of a formal project, activities pass through classic stages of project management. In each of these phases, the project leader’s focus must dramatically and appropriately shift from one stakeholder group to the next. It is from this unique perspective that we understand how to truly lead a project.
In this workshop, we’ll study project leadership, examining the application of both leadership principles and management techniques to successfully plan and complete projects at any level. Participants will examine both the art and the science of “getting things done.”
