Project Management: More Than Just Managing Deadlines

Conference Archive

DevLearn 2019 Conference - October 24, 2019

Joe Nadeau

Director of Training and Development

Everyone involved in training creation and delivery is managing at least part of a project, whether they know it or not. While many think of project management as only meeting a series of deadlines, it can provide you so much more than checkmarks on a calendar. Meeting deadlines is important to your success, but what if you could use basic project management techniques to create repeatable processes, improve communications with your stakeholders, and manage risks we all encounter? Best of all, what if it can make your job easier?

In this session, you'll learn the basics of how projects are managed and how to leverage that knowledge on your next training project. You will learn how to identify stakeholders and meet their needs, set project goals that define success, manage the scope of your project (and how to prevent it from creeping away from you), create a schedule to meet everyone's needs, manage the risks that always find their way into your project, and how to close it out and start all over again. You'll leave the session with a better understanding of how to manage projects (both training and others), provide better information to your stakeholders, and most importantly, create better training more efficiently.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create a basic training project
  • How to create a project charter
  • How to prevent the dreaded "scope creep"
  • How to identify risks and what to do with them
  • When to communicate with stakeholders
  • How to make your successful project easily repeatable
