Archived Webcast: Project Management Skills for the Accidental Project Manager

Our own Gary Chin, author of Agile Project Management, had webcast with the American Management Association last week and now you can listen to the recorded version HERE.

Have you recently fallen into the role of a project manager?

When you suddenly find yourself responsible for managing an important project but are unfamiliar with the “science” of making it happen, you’re an accidental project manager.

The good news is that you can achieve success without being an expert on the subtleties of project management (PM) — you just need to know some basic tools and procedures and have the confidence to apply them properly.

As such, you’ll find this Webcast helpful as it explores a number of practical, no-nonsense techniques that will help you do “just enough” PM to keep things running smoothly

Good project management requires the PM to capture and track a lot of data and subsequently turn that data into information. Having the right stuff in your “toolbox” will increase your efficiency and effectiveness at every turn.

Plus you’ll see how to start building your own PM toolbox that can simplify your chores and increase productivity.AgilePrjctMgr

  1. A lot has been written on the Project Management as an accidental profession, I even have an article mentioning it: Is a Career in Project Management Right for You?, but IMO, Project Management is never forced on anyone, deep down inside, whoever became a Project Manager (especially this way) really had it in him/her.
