About the Workshop

In this 2-day workshop we will explore practical topics such as project management tools, methods for reporting, managing resources, and the differences between traditional waterfall and newer agile project management styles. We will also do a “deep dive” into the people side of project management including building a project team, leading across generations, accounting for the culture of the organization, and helping employees deal with changes as a project proceeds. This will be an engaging, hands-on workshop with activities and group discussion to reinforce the learning.
