Project Management Awareness Education

Projects are intended to achieve improved products and services that make an organization better.  Projects can also be very disruptive requiring teams to work together that normally do not, changing the way that they work by changing assets, people, and behaviors.  Many times the level of urgency across teams is not the same.  Conflicts exist in interpreting the goals of the project and how the project will be accomplished. This is where Project Management Awareness Education comes in.

The good news is a good project process and clearly defined roles hold people accountable to measurable expectations, create a commitment to a shared schedule, control project execution, and allow for visible and well-communicated changes to occur.  Understanding project processes and roles allow cross-functional teams to work more effectively together.  This knowledge allows us to reduce personal conflicts while achieving extraordinary project results.
