DECISION MAKING
Project professionals are decision makers. The better their decision making skills, the better they perform on their projects. The most important decision making skills for them to master are those that deal with basic realities that are seldom covered in decision making courses. This course focuses on seven decision making realities that project professionals should understand. It covers such topics as the need to thoroughly understand a decision's social space, to be on the lookout for scalawags, and to recognize that when bringing together facts to inform a decision, what you see is often not what you get. It points out that nearly all decisions of consequence require balancing the contending needs of multiple players and that the biggest part of a decision maker's job may be to get these players on the same page. And it examines recent group decision making trends, which suggest that leaderless, distributed decision making is here to stay.

COMMUNICATION AND SOFT SKILLS
This course is designed to help project workers develop "soft" skills that will enable them to deal effectively with customers, coworkers, managers, vendors, and anyone else who they encounter during the course of their project efforts. Traditionally, project management has focused on the straight forward scheduling of project work efforts. But experience shows that mastery of traditional techniques will not lead to success unless project professionals are also able to deal effectively with a wide range of players. In the final analysis, project success and failure hinges on people issues, so developing people skills should be a top priority.

Project Leadership
It is not enough to be a good administrator or good manager. Today, getting things done successfully requires leadership. Project Leadership focuses on the need for leadership on project teams. Leadership is particularly important when running projects, because traditional hierarchy-based command and control skills do not work in project environments: you cannot command team members to plan, execute, and sustain excellenceyou must lead them to do what needs to be done.

Mastering Project Management
Successful project management requires technical, process, and psychological skills. With this course, you learn how to bring these skill areas together to form the arsenal of tools needed to successfully achieve project objectives. Included are methods for making better decisions about projects, handling scheduling uncertainty, improving project management processes, and dealing with power and politics. Special attention is given in this course to teaching participants to think like project managers to be active instead of passive, to take responsibility for the project, and to take positive steps to keep on track. The reason for this emphasis is that we have found that many people learn the tools of project management, yet have no idea what is truly the role of a professional project manager. Mastering Project Management is based on the work of Dr. James P. Lewis.

Team-based Project Management
Most managers realize that to manage effectively in today's turbulent environment, they must have good project management skills. However, what is not well understood is that project management is more than just scheduling! Certainly, the tools of project management are absolutely necessary for success, but they are not sufficient in and of themselves! In fact, more projects fail because the project manager lacks people skills than because of poor use of tools. This course equips you with the essential skills you need to manage the human side of projects successfully. Although some individuals are naturally better at dealing with people than others, all of these skills can be learned. This course provides the vital methods of leading, motivating, and communicating with members of your project team to achieve critical project outcomes skills that can be used in any discipline. Team-based Project Management is based on the work of Dr. James P. Lewis.

Effective Estimation
Bad estimates are a leading source of project failure: if you promise to do a five-month job in three-months --- and it really is a five-month job -- schedule slippages and cost overruns are hardwired into the project before any work has begun. Clearly, individuals and organizations intent on reducing the levels of project failure they encounter need to focus attention on improving the way they develop estimates of costs, schedules, and resource requirements. This course balances the "soft" and "hard" dimensions of estimation. On the soft side, it emphasizes that factors, such as the optimism of the sales staff, the naivete of the technical team, and political pressures to win a job at any cost, contribute mightily to understating cost, schedule, and resource realities. On the hard side, it describes a series of techniques -- including trend extrapolation and Monte Carlo simulation -- that enable capable estimators to do a better job of forecasting project requirements.
