Overview

“David is phenomenal. Second course with him and have to say he is one of the best instructors I’ve had at EUCI.” –Harlan Electric

Although managing projects remotely is not a new concept, the process became a requirement in 2020, therefore leading countless people and organizations into what could potentially be unfamiliar territory. Through this course, attendees will understand how to successfully initiate, manage, and complete projects from home, as well as how the process differs compared to face-to-face management systems and styles. Attendees will be walked through everything from how to communicate online effectively, how to manage both teams and individuals from afar, and how to become or continue to be an approachable and successful project manager or participant whose leadership transcends from project to project.

Learning Outcomes

  • Review the project planning process, including how to build a Work Breakdown Structure and reviewing potential risks
  • Discuss the different tools teams can use while developing and executing a project, as well as the communications tactics to employ
  • Identify the best practices for conducting meetings, as well as leadership tactics that will help to streamline all productivity, expectations, and communication
  • Explain how to manage individual and group success and how to monitor towards a successful project completion
