Planning, Streamlining, and Executing Projects

Course Overview

According to research, problems in project management begin before the project starts. 87% of difficulties in project management exist because of flaws in the planning process. That is why participants start this course by learning how to effectively develop and use strategic thought to develop a strategic plan that will increase the probabilities the project will be completed in the correct time frame with the desired results.

Participants will bring actual projects into the class where they will apply the concepts they learn to strategically plan their project so when they complete the class they can begin implementing their project plan. Once they complete their project plan in the class each participant will work with a partner to make sure their plan is realistic, achievable, that there is room in their plan for change, interruptions, and unexpected difficulties.

Finally, participants will learn how and when to fit these projects into his/her already overwhelming daily/weekly calendar so the project takes less time and quality is improved. This includes delegating tasks and tracking their completion. The result is that worst case their project finishes on time and the best case is that it is completed before their deadline. Stress is dramatically reduced as a by-product of this strategic planning process.

Participants will learn to:

  • Ask better questions when defining scope of his/her project in terms of business, technical, and operational objectives
  • Develop a project plan—and get that plan implemented.
  • Save time and energy by creating a flexible plan.
  • Leave room in their plan for the unexpected and change.
  • Refine his/her plan and schedule as objectives and variables change.
  • Managing people and conflict/team member motivation (how to get buy-in and involvement).
  • Focus on his/her project when he/she is best rather than “putting out fires” all day long.
  • Ways to achieve rapid results within time, budget, and scope constraints.
  • Develop techniques for dealing with project conflicts.
  • Develop personal effectiveness and translate that into project effectiveness.
  • Develop the correct weekly measurement tools so his/her project can be adjusted so it still meets the desired deadline.


Participants will leave the class with a project ready to be implemented, the skills necessary to set-up future projects more accurately, in less time, and just once.
