Course Description:


Thanks to rapid change and the pressures of intense competition, more and more work has become project work. Changes in technology and in customer preferences have made work less routine and less repeatable – presenting new challenges for departments geared tactically for daily routines while at the same time, competitive pressures have forced work be done more quickly and with fewer resources.

As a Human Resources professional, you wear many hats within your organization.  From policy and strategic thought to careful administration of the many programs implemented, one thing is for certain, you do wear these many hats because your primary mandate is to always focus on the big-picture. To be successful, you need to allocate the precious resource of time to effectively negotiate for the allocation of people, processes and technology with few changes and near perfect management.  You already know what it means to be a smart risk taker who can “turn-on-a-dime” with meaningful decisions communicated into action. But do you know how to leverage risk so that it can be translated into meaningful, value added action your organization can rely on to move forward? 

Naturally, getting a project to deliver on time, within budget, and in line with quality standards requires savvy management.  And, the bigger the project, the more challenging good management becomes.  As a professional, you’re expected to transform a vague concept into a measurable outcome by channeling a broad array of knowledge, skills, and resources toward a critical organizational goal.


Why you should attend?


This three-day workshop is a practical and comprehensive introduction to the many facets of project management specifically designed for the human resource professional. As a participant, you will be introduced to the fundamental principles behind the nuts and bolts of planning, scheduling, and budgeting as you work through the real world project to assess and recommend actions for complying with the new FLSA O/T Rules by December 1, 2016. You’ll strengthen your skills and understand how to generate valuable benefits for your organization by achieving crucial results that align with organizational objectives. You'll discover the communication skills it takes to get ideas, instructions, and requests across quickly and accurately thereby minimizing development time. You will learn how to effectively use your resources to stay on top of deadlines and expenses, ways to rebound quickly from surprises and setbacks, and how to get the best from people who don't normally report to you. Everyone who attends this workshop will come away in a strong position to lead any project with confidence and discipline — from conception to completion.

  • Learn the imperative questions to ask before you even begin — get the information that will make certain you key in on what is expected, by when, and at what cost
  • Practice using the planning and scheduling tools that professional project managers use (GANTT charts, the critical path method, work breakdown structures, project management software, and others)
  • Discover the best practices for gathering your team, how to articulate the kind of skills, attitudes, and work habits you're looking for, and how to encourage your team to focus on your work and even a few ideas for how to deal with their rather reluctant bosses
  • Implement the controls and safety nets you need to establish early on: learn how to set (and meet) milestones, gain confidence to negotiate for new deadlines if necessary, motivate a team that's losing interest, and determine what to do when plans change midstream — or when the "Murphy factor" hits your project in a big way
