Project Planning: All You Need to Know

Project management has traditionally been considered something only worth doing if you're handling massive projects worth several hundreds of thousands of dollars. Still, in today's world, it is equally useful for small projects as well. Work, project planning documents and work, and resource breakdown structures are extremely relevant for any project in any budget or deadline. This workshop will help people get introduced to the world of project management.


This workshop will involve participants gaining familiarity with the most frequently used project management planning tools and a case study project that will start from the statement of work, advance through work and resource breakdown, and scheduling before eventually concluding with a project planning worksheet.

This workshop is offered to groups of 5 or more.
