Project Management Essentials for the Unofficial Project Manager
Complete projects on time, on budget and with the highest quality.
THE CHALLENGE
How much do failed projects cost you?

When a project is poorly navigated and falls short of budget and timeline goals, it can cost you more than just money, it can cause irreparable damage to reputation, confidence, and client trust. The answer isn’t just dedicated project managers, but instilling your entire team at every level with project management abilities.

 

For guaranteeing project management success, we’ve studied and learned from the Accredited Project Management Institute (PMI). Distilling their robust processes, we’ve blended their techniques with FranklinCovey’s 30 years of experience and timeless principles to equip people with the skills for consistent project success.

The Solution
People + Process = Success
We can tap into the team member potential with the foundational paradigm People + Process = Success. Project management isn’t just about managing logistics and hoping the project team is ready to play to win. For real project success, we need “informal authority” where team members are inspired to work for you and dedicated to seeing the project successfully completed.
