In this day of doing more with less, managing the training deliverables during a project is often left to the lead designer or another designer who is asked to pitch in. As seasoned training professionals, we know this is a possibility, so why let it catch us off guard? By applying lessons learned from previous projects, designers or project managers can take on this task with great confidence that they’re ready for the inevitable curveballs.
Project management is so much more than schedules, budgets, and status. It is a mindset informed by years and years of seeing the same project sponsor mistakes, system delays, and resulting deadlines missed. The key is to learn from those experiences, adapt from them, and incorporate them into your "shadow" project plan. An informative and interactive session.
