PDUs: 1 Strategic PDU
In this presentation, we will focus on the daily flow of work against the backdrop of long-term improvements brought about by Project Managers. Often, operational managers are simply trying to survive a whirlwind of activity called a workday. At the same time, Project Managers are tasked with improving the overall operations. Though these two teams seek the same outcome, the focus required to accomplish the different roles can cause friction that may negatively impact the process we are trying to improve.
How can we bridge the gap between long-term solutions and short-term operations metrics? Can two teams of professionals really come together to benefit the overall mission? Bob believes the answer is a resounding YES, and he plans to show us how we can all be successful!
At the end of this webinar, participants will understand how to:
- Reduce error and improve efficiency when sharing work between roles.
- Be more aware of potential pitfalls and how to avoid them.
- Balance OM (short-term) and PM (long-term) objectives.
- Form better OM and PM relationships through a better understanding of both roles.
Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
