STR104 Project Management: Just How Much Do You Need?
1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Wednesday, March 22
Managing eLearning projects so that they meet requirements and finish on time and on budget can be tricky! Project scope might be a moving target, development never-ending, and reviews subjective at best. Sure, there’s a body of project management knowledge out there, but how do you determine just how much project management you need?
In this session, you will determine how best to manage your eLearning projects, what approach and tools are required, and how much effort is really necessary. You’ll review a straightforward process for objectifying, measuring, and evaluating eLearning projects. And you’ll consider how to do this work with the least amount of effort possible! After all, the goal isn’t good project management; the goal is good eLearning on time and on budget. Project management is a tool you’ll use to help get there.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to determine how much project management effort is required
- How to evaluate progress on your projects
- How to avoid scope creep
- How and what to communicate to project staff
Intermediate to advanced developers, project managers, managers, and directors.
