Team-based Project Management (UMTPM011)   Register Online

Most managers realize that to manage effectively in today's turbulent environment, they must have good project management skills. However, what is not well understood is that project management is more than just scheduling! Certainly, the tools of project management are absolutely necessary for success, but they are not sufficient in and of themselves! In fact, more projects fail because the project manager lacks people skills than because of poor use of tools. This course equips you with the essential skills you need to manage the human side of projects successfully.

Although some individuals are naturally better at dealing with people than others, all of these skills can be learned. This course provides the vital methods of leading, motivating, and communicating with members of your project team to achieve critical project outcomes – skills that can be used in any discipline.

Team-based Project Management is based on the work of Dr. James P. Lewis. Dr. Lewis is an adjunct professor at UMT who has conducted project management training for more than 20,000 supervisors and managers around the world. He is founder and president of The Lewis Institute.
