Project Planning for the Non Project Manager

A goal without a plan is just a wishSpeaker: Lorraine Spence, LS consulting

“A goal without a plan is just a wish!

This course is aimed at startups, small businesses and private individuals that require help with planning. 

Do you set yourself goals on a regular basis but find that you never reach them or even start them? Do you find it an ongoing struggle to get things done in order to realise your goals? Do you create ‘’to do’’ lists over and over again but never complete the tasks? Do you often feel overwhelmed by all the tasks you have ongoing? Whether you are a small business or an individual, knowing how to plan will not only help you reach your goals but also work more effectively and save you time in the long run.

Don’t be overwhelmed

Using Project Management techniques, learn how to define your goal as a project and create a definitive plan to complete your project. These techniques can be used for personal projects as well as business projects and can be expanded for more complex projects. Project Management is a vast topic and Lorraine has condensed the most important planning methods into an understandable useful topic for the non-project manager.

Lorraine will be covering the following topics: 

  • What Project Management is and can cover.
  • Creating a project definition for your goal
  • Breaking your project down into bite size and manageable pieces
  • Organising and prioritising your project items
  • Creating a project schedule
  • Getting ready to execute your project

Now you will be ready to plan and reach the goals you have set and ignored for so long. Come prepared with a goal in mind and the reasons why you want/need to achieve the goal. Also make a note of what your barriers are and who if anyone else is involved.

Let’s get started on those goals now.
