Essential Business Skills

Complex and diverse, today’s global business environment demands all employees have the forethought to anticipate and pivot towards changing opportunity. Your skill sets have to be continually updated and enhanced to create value for a business and position yourself for the next step in your career. Please explore our current 1 day workshop offerings to find one that meets your current and future essential business skills development.

Project Management Essentials

The essentials workshop is an activity-based program that gives you the opportunity to learn critical project-management skills through exercises, group discussion and application to a project. Attend Project Management Essentials to learn BOTH the technical and behavioral aspects of project management. You will learn how to plan for and execute the project plan AND how to select and manage the people chosen to be on the project team.

Why Learn Project Management Essentials?

In today’s business world, projects are undertaken every day as part of the ongoing organizational strategy and they often compete for the same company resources. Not surprisingly, many of these projects fail to deliver their stated and agreed-upon outcomes. The common causes of project failure are diverse and run the gamut from poorly defined project scope to project managers who lack experience and training. The ultimate cost of project failure can be significant, both financially and in the strain on corporate resources. This program provides the skills and knowledge to increase the likelihood that project deliverables can be achieved, on-time and within budget, while maintaining the integrity of the project team.

Why TCNJ Project Management Essentials?

This program covers both the technical aspects (how you plan for and execute the project plan), as well as the behavioral aspects (how you select and manage the people) of project management. Jeff has 30 years’ experience in business and over 20 years of project management expertise and success. Jeff specializes in developing and delivering solutions that achieve business goals by utilizing project management best practices.

Who should attend?

This program is equally applicable to project managers (who lead projects) and project team members (who work for and support project managers). It is also recommended for those who are project stakeholders such as project sponsors, project steering committee members and project coordinators.

What will I learn?

Understand and apply Project Management terms and concepts
Understand the four distinct phases of a Project, the components of each, and why each is critical to the project’s success

Be able to immediately apply these principles to a specific Project you may be involved with at work
