Managing a project is a challenge unto itself.  But what happens when you’re called upon to manage 3, 4 or even a dozen projects?  The dynamics change, and your management approach should as well.
Managing Multiple Projects provides you with the insight on how to manage your own portfolio of projects, whether they’re all components of the same program or represent a disparate set of prospects from different quarters within your organization. This seminar affords you a hands-on opportunity to work through the mechanical and strategic issues associated with dealing with a host of projects that all seem to clamor for your time and attention.
Many of us tend to respond most quickly (and effectively) to the “squeaky wheels” within the organization and as a result, more important projects may suffer. Learn specific ways to wield more authority in terms of setting priorities. Participants will explore ways to leverage those priorities to have more intelligent conversations with management and to build a better understanding of why we work on what we work on.
From a mechanical perspective, the session also provides the opportunity to develop more consistent structures for project planning, including the three most common foibles managers make when they construct work breakdown structures.  In the process of fixing the WBS, you’ll also learn how to leverage opportunities across projects and to conduct more effective cross-project analyses.
