About This Course

Even with clear goals, good planning and excellent teamwork, the average project stakeholder loses about six weeks a year due to wasted effort. It comes in the form of lost time and increased stress due to miscommunication, distractions and lack of clarity around task requirements and stakeholder expectations. This course covers applicable techniques and approaches that can help save you a significant amount of time. By the end of the course you’ll be able to better understand and manage the costs that go with miscommunication and wasted time on projects, and ideas and approaches for helping those on your project teams to be significantly more effective. You’ll also walk away with a Personal Application Plan which includes specific techniques that you can start applying to your projects today.
