A Bridge to Enterprise Project Management, Part 1


Multiple Projects Workshop

" Quality is the result of a carefully constructed cultural environment.
It has to be the fabric of the organization, not part of the fabric."
-- Philip Crosby, Reflections on Quality


The Multiple Projects Workshop combines seminar learning with the hands-on experience.  Participants organize their project inventories, prioritize projects, identify cross-project relationships, identify resources, build planning templates, analyze processes, establish intermediate deliverables and, optionally, develop work breakdown structures (WBS), decision tables and apply software including Outlook, Excel, MS Project and Project KickStart.
