Make September Project Launch Time

While some still enjoy their well-deserved holidays and couldn’t be bothered with 2013, others are already thinking hard about it, even on holidays. They know, comes September, when businesses traditionally begin to shift into higher gear, they have to be ready to move, too.

This is especially true for the Project Manager, who just before taking his leave was given an assignment with a completion date sometime next year, or beyond. As an expert PM he knows what needs to be done, what processes are involved and what kind of “players” he’ll need.

But it is the latter that worries him the most, because most likely he will have to take what he gets, not what he wants. Forging a team out of these sometimes random players just happens to also be part of the job. One of his first priorities then is to bring the team to speak the same “language”, have it identify with the task at hand and be committed to the cause.

Involving the team in drafting the Project Charter, the Project Management Plan and planning the ensuing steps is a time-proven method to get the project off the ground. However, some educational help may be necessary.

Scatterwork fills this gap with its workshop …

 How To Launch Your Team Project More Effectively,

which is or can be based on a team’s actual project guiding it efficiently through the launch phase. It also introduces the team to enough of the concepts and terminology of the PMBOK® Guide to support project success.

The workshop may last from 1-2 days, depending on the nature of the project. This workshop and other courses on project management were created and are run by Dr. Deasún Ó Conchúir, a highly competent project management expert and very much in demand as project troubleshooter, coach and trainer. He also  wrote“Overview to the PMBOK® Guide” described as the book for everyone in need of readable instructions to best practice management.
