learning format


Do you sometimes have so many ideas for an upcoming task that you skip the planning for the task altogether and get started right away? Often, this “just do it” mentality is not a bad thing at all, sometimes it’s even the better way to get things done. In classic project management, however, it is exact the opposite. Here, planning is key to the success of the project! In this e⁠-⁠training course, you will therefore learn about the success factors of project planning in classic project management. You will learn which projects can be managed the classical way and how important it is to clearly allocate roles in order to make the project a success. Furthermore, the course highlights the project assignment as the most important planning document in classic project work. You will learn how to define milestones and thus give structure to project planning and the project phases. The e⁠-⁠training course content rounds off with tips for how to use the kick-off meeting to successfully move from planning to implementing the project.
