Program Description:

In order to successfully run the learning organization as a business, the learning leader must be able to clearly articulate training project scopes and build positive relationships with stakeholders. This session will focus on how to apply project management techniques to training development initiatives in order to produce highly effective learning events for the business.

The Situation...You are a great learning leader, understand ADDIE, and great in front of the classroom. But when it comes to completing training projects, you dive right into execution most of the time usually because of limited time and resources.

The Impact...When you dive right in, you miss important details like truly understanding the purpose of the project and how other projects may impact your success. Most of all you miss building important relationships with sponsors, SMEs, and other stakeholders that can ultimately help to make or break your project. This can negatively impact the result of your project and limit buy-in from the organization.

The Solution...Whether your training project is large or small, this session is structured to help prevent you from taking that dive, and learn easy tips and tricks to include in your up-front planning. You will see that a small amount of up-front planning and communication, can lead to huge improvements; not only in your training projects but also in your own professional development.

Why?  Because you will learn to add credibility and strength to your training initiatives through the use of project management skills.       

In this session you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of Project Management Methodology
  • Define project roles and responsibilities
  • Learn how to better plan, document, and track training projects
  • Learn how to set clear, targeted objectives and define project scope
  • Learn how to manage stakeholder expectations
  • Clearly communicate, record and present project status
