Project management is about translating strategy into a tactical plan (check out my session at ATD TechKnowledge).
This simple approach breaks down when
• Create a simple Project Charter (45 minutes or less)
• Create a simple Project Schedule by working back from the date
• Be very clear about Governance (Decision Making)
• Emphasize the need to invest in constant Communication (Bad News Early is Good News)
In the second quarter of 2015, the ATD Project Management for Learning Professionals online and live classes will be updated to include methodology changes, easier scheduling, work estimation guidelines and other tidbits our facilitators have been working to include based on their experiences over the last year. We are proud to offer other variations of our project management programs through additional organizations including: the E-Learning Guild, Project World and Training Magazine.
