The world of Project Management is rapidly evolving from an us-and-them perspective (Agile vs. Waterfall) to a hybrid environment in which we are encouraged to draw techniques from the best of all worlds in order to meet the needs of our project in our environment. Rather than having to decide if we should learn how to manage Agile or how to manage Waterfall, we are learning to understand as many techniques as possible and to apply the right combination to our specific situation. In this two-day workshop, Lisa and Dave of Leadership Techniques, LLC will engage you in a journey from project concept through execution to the transition to your next project. Along the way, you’ll learn the most current best practices through hands-on activities and exercises. 

Who is this class intended for: Experienced Project Managers

At the conclusion of the class, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the business environment of the project and the responsibility of the Project Manager with respect to benefits management
  • Distinguish between the various Project Management development lifecycles and understand the selection criteria used to optimize the development process
  • Use best-practice Project Management techniques to manage schedules, budgets, and project risk
