Ever wonder how certain people manage projects effortlessly? People listen to them, people respect them, they are respected, people recognize what they do, and they have support from someone – their boss, their mentor or someone.
My name is Elizabeth Harrin and I’m the founder of Project Management Rebels. I’m also the author of 5 books. You might also know me from my blog, A Girl’s Guide to Project Management. Welcome to 2020 Project Management, my brand-new training series.
Today’s video will show you how to be a successful project manager in the new decade. This video will help you understand how to make projects work in real life. Because what you learn in textbooks, even those I write, isn’t always easy to apply when you include real people and messy projects.
It is much easier to manage your projects when you know what to do.
This video series will give you some tips and tricks to help you improve your skills as a project manager.
This is my first training video. I will share the essential skills that project managers need. There are dozens of skills projectmanagers need, and if you’ve read the PMBOK(r) guide, or any other professionalstandard, you’ll know that I can’t cover them all in this short video – sowhere do you start? My hope is that you can cut through the noise and focus on the skills that truly matter.
This list was created because I saw many people who don’t have the time or desire to learn project management. I can remember when I could go 5 days without leaving the office to complete a PRINCE2 (r) course. But these days, I have a full-time job, a family, and I don’t have the time to devote to professional development. Although I don’t believe age is a factor, I do think that our lives are more hectic, our jobs require more, and our work is more complicated. So I wanted to find out, in order to better support project managers in my community, what the most important things are – where should I be spending my time?
In this 2020 Project Management Training Series, I will share with you my plan to gain more time and feel more confident doing the work we do. That’s what I want to share with you. Youwouldn’t be watching this if you weren’t already committed to professionaldevelopment.
As we go through this training, I want you to see the obvious opportunities for your current situation, no matter where you are in your career.
Are you ready? Let’s get started!
