Managing Complex Tasks Fail Safe Methods for Managing Small Projects
The hierarchies in which we work have become quite fluid. As a manager you are likely to be responsible for multiple, often complex pieces of work, involving contributions from people outside your direct team. The ability to simplify, organise, delegate and lead this work will be critical to delivering the results your organisation is looking for.
Some lucky people are naturally skilled in these areas, but most of us aren’t. Luckily there is a range of best practice frameworks, originating in project management that we can use to ensure our small projects are delivered on time and within budget. In this course, you will learn how to optimise your available time; plan, prioritise and delegate tasks; gain commitment from others; keep track of progress; mitigate risks and deal with issues promptly. Good project management is always underpinned by great communication, so you will also learn how to construct a simple, effective team communication plan.
By the end of this course you will have:
- appreciated their role and responsibilities as project manager
- used a range of tools for planning
- a process for leading and motivating the project team to deliver
- implemented a management framework to ensure efficient execution of the plan
- established an effective team communication plan
- the knowledge to avoid pitfalls and overcome the most common challenges
