Project Management Workshop

 

This one day workshop has been put together as a result of member led feedback, on areas for development needed during 2020. 

Our mission at EPAA is clear, to ensure that you add unparalleled value at a top level to your executives across the UK. 

Many Executive and Business Support professionals have undertaken Project Management on an ad-hoc basis over the last decade and beyond and/or have supported Executives leading projects. Projects for this profession can range widely and some professionals have now specialised in this area and have obtained more formal Project Management Qualifications. 

As we move from a more secretarial/administration based service to more strategic support, obtaining a greater understanding of the mechanics of Project Management lends itself well to improving your credibility and capabilities as an Executive Assistant. 

You will learn how to scope, cost, execute and deliver a highly successful project on behalf of your leader/department and organisation.  We will work through project examples (case scenarios) throughout the workshop and how different methodologies can be utilised effectively. 

WHY ATTEND? 

  • Learn how to plan and scope for a successful project 
  • Utilise different project management models and tools – when to use 
  • Characteristics of a successful project leader 
  • Identify your project team 
  • Build strong interpersonal skills
