This workshop is engaging and fast-paced and will be taught in an “I Do, We Do, You Do” format. Using real-life examples, humor (I hope!), and guided practice, I will take participants on a journey to create or tweak a plan for a current project. You will receive a workbook with interactive note-taking sheets, samples, and blank electronic templates to customize for personal use. We will look at actual samples of many types of project management—with a focus on investment, planning and communications! This workshop is NOT focused on project management technology, though if you want to review options in advance, please check out tools such as Trello, Basecamp, Asana, or millions of other options out there!
