Course Synopsis


As organizational hierarchies give way to dynamic, cross-functional project teams, senior managers find themselves challenged with adopting a "new economy" approach to managing project managers.


The leader of project managers must bring order and rationality to a chaotic environment, identify opportunities to influence the direction of projects and provide the means for project managers to succeed. In addition, the leader of project managers must be skilled at managing project portfolios, allocating resources, reviewing projects and communicating appropriately. Above all, the leader of project managers must know the right questions to ask!


In this highly facilitated course, students will learn soft and hard skills and approaches that lead to organizational success in the "management by projects" environment. They also will get expert perspectives and review best practices on issues critical to those who lead project managers. Students will enjoy lively debate and stimulating conversation that reinforces what students know and what they have learned.


This course provides applicants with a new way of thinking about the best way to lead people in conjunction with the underlying process of project management. It is a "must-have" for anyone responsible for leading and managing project managers.


Reminder: Participants should have a basic understanding of project management before taking this course. It is assumed that attendees currently or will soon lead project managers, with or without a direct reporting relationship.
