Project HEADWAY: Essential Principles for New Project Managers
Some slides used in this video may not be entirely legible on screen so it is best to download the PDF file and follow along.
Being a new project manager is a challenge. Where do you start? There is process to manage, expectations to confront, stakeholders to deal with and accountabilities that you are only beginning to appreciate.
It's one thing to think you have the essentials of process. It is another thing to apply it well, in an ambiguous, uncertain and political environment. Being a new project manager is never easy, and trial and error is often a part of it.
In this presentation, Mark Mullaly endeavors to take some of the guesswork out of getting started. You'll explore the essentials of what it takes to be an effective project manager, and how to put your best foot forward on your first day in the role. He examines what you need to now about process, practices, people and politics. You'll get experienced advice to apply in a situation where experience is what you most feel is missing.
Whether you are a new project manager, or one that has been around the block a few times, this is a presentation where you are likely to still get a wealth of value and insight.
