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.
