Project Management In Human Resources:
3-Day Certification Program
Location: San Francisco, CA| HRCI & SHRM Certified Event
Dates: November 20-22, 2019 - 3 Days

HR professionals are asked to juggle a wide variety of assignments and add on special ones as needed. In many companies, the people, who formerly performed specialized tasks, are gone, along with their expertise. The work still needs to be done and HR Managers are called on to take on this work as a 'project.' The 'project' is added to an already full schedule, major decisions have been made elsewhere, and you may have no team to carry out the work. Most HR folks are not trained as project managers and may struggle with getting everything done effectively and efficiently. The basics of project management are universal and many of the tools are easy to use. Get the results your organization expects applying these fundamental approaches to tackle special assignments and integrate all your assignments into a project you manage productively and systematically.
You are already good at getting different stakeholders to cooperate because of your excellent communication skills. Build on these and use more sophisticated tools to get project results. Continually improve your existing skills in project management, communication, understanding human nature, and working across organizational lines. As you lead more successful projects, you will have new challenges. Be ready to take a deeper dive into advanced project management standards and their application to your situation. This can be overwhelming on top of your many responsibilities and priorities. Develop a plan to integrate new skills and tools systematically and continuously.
In this practical seminar, you will learn to: plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time, on budget, on target; prevent scope creep, stop firefighting, and put your effort into solving the problem; define potential risks and develop contingency plans; use simple tools to manage projects of any size; and provide stakeholders with the results they expect.
As a result of this program, HR professionals will be able to:

Recognize the “business problem” before the project begins
Organize tasks easily into logical groups of activities
Create a project plan to guide all your efforts
Hone organizational skills: Manage your project ‘Team', even if there is none
Communicate even more effectively; Keep critical stakeholders involved
Avoid major project pitfalls; Track progress; Recognize slippage quickly
Anticipate and manage project risk
Lead effective project meetings
Meet project objectives; Demonstrate successful project completion
Bring in projects on time, on budget, and on target
Apply Lessons Learned to the next project

Real Life Practical Application Exercises:
This program is highly interactive, with many workshops, activities, and a Case Study. In the Case Study you will apply all the tools and techniques and lock in your learning. You will leave with many resources and a plan to implement what you have learned back at work.
