Let’s face it. It’s almost impossible to inspire and motivate people who don’t have the simple skills they need to do their jobs! If your project team isn’t literate in the basics of project management (PM), they are quite likely frustrated and ineffective. So why not train them in PM basics?
This may be the only PM Training your people need! And it's FREE!
Unfortunately, some senior managers believe that PM is so complex that it requires many days of formal training. Paradoxically, the very people who need this basic training are the ones who “don’t have the time” because they are struggling (due to lack of basic PM skills) to keep their projects moving.
So why not break the cycle of PM ineffectiveness and frustration? These 8 free videos (just under 1 hour total!) are designed to help you apply “just enough” project management (PM) to manage your projects effectively — without burdening your team (and you!) with a bunch of unnecessary PM administrivia.
Whether you show these at lunchtime or set them up to run in the break room, they will provide the PM basics in an easy-to-assimilate form. By exposing your team to these videos, you’re likely to raise their PM consciousness, increase their effectiveness, and — just maybe — elevate their sense of professionalism. And that, after all, could be quite inspiring!
P.S. — Did I mention that I teach customized, on site PM classes? So if you decided to “dig deeper” and set aside a couple of days to focus on your team’s PM skills, let me know! (See: About Michael Greer’s Customized, On Site PM Workshops (“First do no harm!”)
