"The use of this seal is not an endorsement by the HR Certification Institute of the quality of the program".

HR Managers are asked to juggle a wide variety of assignments and add on special ones as needed. In many companies, the people, who formerly performed specialized tasks, are gone, along with their expertise. The work still needs to be done and HR Managers are called on to take on this work as a “project.” Most HR folks are not trained as project managers and may struggle with getting everything done effectively and efficiently. The basics of project management are universal and many of the “tools” are easy to use. During the disruption caused by COVID-19, additional challenges face HR professionals as they manage special assignments. Get the results your organization expects applying fundamental project management approaches to tackle special assignments and integrate your work into a large project, you manage productively and systematically.

In this practical seminar, you will learn to: plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time, on budget, on target; prevent scope creep, stop firefighting, and put your effort into solving the problem; define potential risks and develop contingency plans; use simple tools to manage projects of any size; and provide stakeholders with the results they expect. This program is highly interactive, with many workshops, activities, and a Case Study. In the Case Study you will apply all the tools and techniques and lock in your learning. You will leave with many resources and a plan to implement what you have learned at work.

Why Should You Attend?

You are already doing more than you thought possible and here comes this "extra" assignment. Instead of being overwhelmed, you will set the work up as a project, manage it using an approach with a track record of success, and get the results your management requires. You'll hone your existing skills and build on them. You'll apply what you learn to rest of your assignments, becoming more productive, and still have time to think about how to improve the overall performance of your area of responsibility.

Learning Objectives:

As a result of this program, HR professionals will be able to:

  • Recognize the “business problem” before the project begins
  • Organize tasks easily into logical groups of activities
  • Create a project plan to guide all your efforts
  • “Manage” your project “team” even if you don’t have one
