Project Management Best Practices

Lorman

On Demand Webinar – 50% Discount

Despite decades of research confirming common causes of project failure, 50-70% of projects still fail, depending on the surveys you examine.   According to the Project Management Institute and others, 10% or more of every project dollar is wasted at a rate of $1m every ten seconds.  Until organizations value project management and adopt a continuous improvement mindset, this problem will not go away.  This presentation examines project management best practices to avoid the top causes of project failure.  Adopting or strengthening these practices will improve project success over time. This workshop is critical for senior executives, managers, PMO leaders, and project managers seeking to enhance business and project success.

BUSA-40971 – Project Risk Management

UC San Diego Online Course

17 October – 3 December

All projects start with uncertainty, creating wide-ranging consequences from unmet plans to total organizational failure. Nearly all projects are conducted in some form of a regulatory environment. But regulation alone cannot assure success. Ongoing research shows that risk management is still a frequently neglected area of planning, including in regulated environments such as healthcare, medical devices, and pharmaceuticals. This course examines a framework that may be applied to any projects and other initiatives to scale risk management best practices quickly. Through instruction and realistic, scenario-based assignments, students are introduced to organized and practical approaches to manage project risks and improve overall project outcomes.
