No matter how much technology, how many “whiz-bang” applications are implemented, or if the project team is loaded with MBAs or PMPs, projects are ultimately delivered by people. To be more specific, projects are successful or unsuccessful as a direct result of its team members.
Project Team Participation is a two day, instructor-facilitated, learning course designed to help participants become better project team members. The basic premise of the course is to inspire team members to assert their creative best for the project.
In this course, participants will be introduced to common team member principles that must be applied in the project environment. After an introduction to the better practices for each learning unit, course attendees will apply these principles via relevant individual and team exercises.
This course will benefit any project team contributor.
