Project Management for Human Resource Professionals

HR professionals - regardless of their specific role and responsibilities within the organization - have a variety of projects to be completed on a regular basis, many of which are strategic and will have an impact throughout the entire organization. 

This full day program, developed specifically for HR professionals, provides a simple process for day-to-day management of HR initiatives, regardless of their size and impact within the business.  A HR-related case study is used to apply the concepts being learned in the workshop. In addition, numerous mini case studies and discussions topics are threaded throughout the full day.

All participants will be provided templates to use back on the job, along with a simple step-by-step process to improve how projects are managed. Action planning is done at the end of the day in order to enable participants to map out a plan to get started applying their new skills and knowledge back on the job.
