In our professional and personal lives, many of us undertake projects, large and small. Some of us may be new to leading a project and may not fully understand what is involved with successfully planning, executing, and completing. Others have years of experience, having learned much of what they know through trial and error. We intend to benefit both the project management expert and the novice through this webinar by providing a high-level overview of a typical project life cycle.

After defining and giving examples of key terms, we will examine project inputs, initiation, the planning phase (the most important part), control of a project, and what to remember when closing it out after completion.  Interspersed in the discussion are tips, tricks, and best practices to help the project lead!  Invest an hour and join us for the webinar, gain a continuous learning credit, and learn something new that may pay big dividends in cost and schedule savings in your next project.
