The Secrets of Managing Any Project On Time and On Budget
Do you have an unlimited budget to complete your projects correctly? Can you take as much time as you need? Do you receive clear direction when a new project lands on your desk? If you’re a project manager, more often than to, the answer to all these questions is no.
Let Michael Dobson show you why project management is so much more than using software, drawing charts, and leading teams — that it’s first and foremost a way of thinking about projects. You’ll learn:
The difference between projects and programs, and why it matters
How to plan and manage both time and cost
The essential skill of focusing on the objective
How to uncover hidden resources and opportunities on any project
How to brainstorm potential problems and solve them early on
No matter how many projects and deadlines you’re battling, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of each step in the project life cycle so you can bring your projects in on time and on budget every time. Follow Dobson’s advice, and before long you’ll be creating “miracles on demand”!ski
