Project Management for Non-Project Managers

project-management-wordcloud

Project management is one of the skills even those whose domain of expertise it is not, are expected to know in detail. Project management is a very useful supplementary skill to have for non-project managers simply because every work in most organizations gets done as projects. When project managers or others who work on project management are unable to deliver-whatever be the reason for it-others are expected to fit into their shoes and deliver. This substitution can make the difference between the completion and noncompletion of a project.

A six-hour webinar from GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will show how non-project managers can acquire knowledge of project management. This webinar, which is being organized on March 20, brings Charles H. Paul, who is the President of C. H. Paul Consulting, Inc., a regulatory, manufacturing, training, and technical documentation consulting firm, as the expert.

Charles will give an understanding of the critical tasks within each project phase that non-project managers must perform rightly if the project is to be completed on time while meeting the requirements. This learning will offer a foundation and direction for future study of the subject.

Over the course of these six hours, Charles will offer the basic tools that smoothen the implementation of a project. These tools are vital to ensuring this. He will divide this webinar into two three-hour slots, during which he will offer learning of the ways by which to manage the project from beginning till end, moving logically across these endpoints during these two sessions.

This webinar is of core importance to any member of a cross functional project team that has the potential opportunity to lead that project, engineers, marketing associates, product managers, program managers, contract managers, project managers, Research & Development Associates, managers, and directors, design engineers, and manufacturing managers.

Project Management is important for non-Project Managers, too

Project Management is important for non-Project Managers, too

A few skills need to be imbibed by professionals, even if they are out of their domains or area of expertise. This is because when it comes to handling crunch situations; one cannot expect a manager to throw up his arms and say that nothing can be done. Just some knowledge of the work could ease the tenseness of the situation to a considerable extent.

Project management is one such skill. Knowledge of at least some aspects of project management can help a non-project manager take over the reins in the absence of a project manager, if only to keep the project going, till the next project manager arrives. Having a standby project manager, even if this job is not her cup of tea, will go a long way in ensuring that an emergency does not stall a project.

Putting a project on hold, especially if the manager is not available, is one of the worst things an organization can do. If it is unable to deliver its project due to this reason; it is a very bad commentary on its ability to deliver. It stands to suffer a loss of reputation, and deservedly so. This is why organizations need to develop non-project managers, who may have to be called in to put in some extra effort to save the organization the embarrassment and subsequent damage arising from non-implementation of a project.

More felt in the globalized workforce

Project Management is important for non-Project Managers, too4

This need is all the more acute in today’s setups, in which many organizations employ globally located workforces. These employees may be called upon to collaborate with remotely located colleagues and interact with them to deliver the goods. When there is absence of project managers, it can throw the work out of gear. This is a typical situation in which a non-project manager can be a great asset.

Having specific knowledge of the aspects of the project, the wavelengths of the employees working on it, the various elements and dynamics of the project, the culture, time zones and the language of the remotely located employees -all these are important aspects of project management.
