Project Management Fundamentals (WPG029-65)

$249

with Cesar Rodas

Calendar Mar 3, 2023 at 9 am, runs for 4 weeks

Project Management is more about managing expectations than dates.  Effectively managing multiple projects, resources, and budgets is critical in today's global business environment.  This Project Management course will dive into the roles and responsibilities of the project manager and examine project management in theory as well as in practice.  The course offers a practical approach to managing projects, without requiring any previous project management experience.  We will focus on organizing, planning, and controlling the deliverables of the project using good practices.

Students will participate in structured workshops where simulated project plans are designed and implemented. At the end of the course, students will understand why project management requires a high degree of professionalism and attention to detail, and how to achieve that end in future projects.

We will examine project management roles, the project lifecycle, and various techniques of work planning, control, and evaluation to achieve project objectives using system tools and project management philosophies.

Topics:

  • What makes a good project?
  • Documentation of a project
  • Common pitfalls
  • Ownership versus governance of the project
  • Project communication

Entrepreneurial Mindset Training: The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program (WGB037-67)

$359

with Mindy Kole

Calendar Mar 30, 2023 at 4 pm

Gallup reports that only one-third of employees (34%) in the US were engaged with their work in 2021, and 16% were actively disengaged in their work and workplace.*  This is a serious problem for today’s employers as disengaged employees are less productive, less motivated, and often result in short staffing and costly turnover for the organization.

The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program is an experiential learning program designed to immerse participants in real-world experiences that enables them to develop entrepreneurial attitudes and skills.

Inspired by the life story of Pulitzer nominee Clifton Taulbert, the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program draws on eight fundamental concepts that were distilled from more than ten years of research including hundreds of interviews with successful entrepreneurs.

Throughout the course, participants will examine the underlying beliefs and assumptions that empower entrepreneurs to identify and evaluate new opportunities, overcome obstacles, and create success regardless of where they start.

By investing your time in this course, and committing to learning how to have an entrepreneurial mindset, you will see a life-long return on that investment that will not only benefit you today, but in the weeks, months, and years to come.
