Are You Wondering if You’re Cut Out For This Project Management Stuff?

If you found PM Perspective, this means you were looking for some practical, immediately usable advice on Project Management.  Many of the people who reach out to me for help are stressed and worried.  They’ve worked hard to get noticed by company executives, and now their hard work has paid off, they’ve been asked to manage a very important project.  Yay!

But … after the initial excitement of being recognized wears off, they begin to realize, they have no idea what to do next!

If this is you, you’ve come to the right place.  If you’ll let me, I’d like to take you by the hand and show you exactly what you need to do to take full advantage of this opportunity and shine like a star.

I Know What You’re Going Through

There’s a good chance I know exactly what you’re going through.  You see, I was what we call an “accidental” Project Manager.  My background is in engineering and technology but, because I managed to develop the ability to lead teams and acomplish goals, business leaders started to call upon me to manage projects for them again and again.  Once you get a reputation for being able to make things happen, you sort of get forced into the whole project management thing.

The thing I remember most about those early days of project management was the FRUSTRATION! There’s a ton of books, video and classes out there on Project managment, but it’s just a bunch of crappy plaittitues and theory.  I’d read a book that said “communication is key to successful project delivery,” or “the #1 reason projects fail is due to bad requirements,” and I’d think, “no shit Sherlock!”  Try as I might, I couldn’t find any resouces that gave practical, immediately useable information. 

So, in those early days, I struggled.  I was up all night, every night, desperately trying to find information that might help me the next day at the office.  I spent a lot of time feeling like an imposter, as though someone would discover, at any minute, that I didn’t know what the hell I was doing.

That’s why I developed this course.  It’s not an extensive library for all things project managment, but it’s everything you need to know to start putting project plans together like a pro.  Use what I show you in this course and you will get results way beyond what most seasoned “professional” Project Managers enjoy.

What You’ll Get…

LESSON 1 | Work Breakdown Structures Made Easy

Lesson one is all about bringing the team together to build something called the Work Breakdown Structure, or WBS.  Not only is building the WBS the first step towards developing a solid plan, it’s your first opportunity to establish yourself as a leader and build a solid connection among team members.

Lesson Length: 2 hours 42 minutes

Prerequisites: None

Resources:  Meeting invitation example, Project Planning Session Presentation template, Links to both free and paid tools for WBS creation

Lesson 2 | Activity Sequencing

Lesson two walks you through the process of taking all of the activities identified in the WBS and shows you how to determine the real life relationships between activities.  We use something called a Network Diagram or PERT Chart to do this.  With the Network Diagram, we can use tools like Microsoft Project to calculate the REAL start and end dates for activities.

Lesson Length: 1 hour 39 minutes

Prerequisites: Lesson 1

Resources:  Links to the most popular Network Diagramming tools.

LESSON 3 | Creating The Project schedule in MS Project

Lesson three is where the rubber meets the road!  I walk you through the steps needed to take your Network Diagram and input it into Microsoft Project.  I also show you how to add resources, holidays and other items that are important for enabling MS Project to calculate accurate dates for your schedule.  We will have a brief overview of how to use MS Project to create a forecast and we’ll go into detail about the tool I use to capture weekly updates from the team.  We finish up with a discussion on how to use MS Project as an analysis tool, run what-if scenarios and find solutions when the team slips behind schedule.

Lesson Length: 1 hour 43 minutes

Prerequisites: Lesson 2

Resources:  MS Project Setup Checklist, Gantt Formatting Checklist, Budget Tracking Spreadsheet, Macro to create the update collection report
