Most project management courses focus on mathematical formulas and provide generic high-level information for managing any type of project. Most Instructional Design courses focus on creating instructionally sound courses but omit the realities of working as part of a larger team with a limited timeframe and budget. This workshop focuses on how to manage others while creating an instructionally-sound, multi-course curriculum.
The dirty little secret of large-scale system, policy, or process implementations is that, outside of training professionals, training projects are often considered the "ugly stepchildren". They often suffer from a lack of attention, information, and time for addressing the complete ADDIE model. The Training Project Manager, therefore, serves as the "fairy godmother" to the training team: Educating key stakeholders on what the training team needs, advocating on behalf of the training team, and managing the team's workflow and resources.
In this workshop, Karen shares her experiences, insights, tips, and tools for successful training project management. Through discussions and group activities, participants will learn how they can turn their "ugly stepchildren" training projects into stunning Cinderella projects that become the belle of the ball and lead the way to successful system implementations.
What this workshop offers:
- Frank discussions about the challenges training project managers face and suggestions for how to address these issues proactively.
- Insights and implementable tips and tools to help manage training projects with multiple team members more proactively and effectively.
- Tips to help you manage and advocate effectively so that you can become the training team’s "fairy godmother" and turn your "ugly stepchildren" into stunning Cinderella projects.
Benefits for attending the workshop:
