What would it mean for you and your organization if you could facilitate projects focusing on the people and the process? Projects often include written status reports, schedules, project management platforms, and meetings. Yet, the projects still end up over budget, exceeding timelines, and straining relationships. RACI charts, project plans, and other templates only represent the process.
Using a human-centered approach means that your project management toolkit includes leading the people side of projects. People first, then the process and tools equal project success.
In this session, you will:
- Identify specific people-focused capabilities needed for a project’s success
- Brainstorm vital human-centered tools and techniques to include in your project management toolkit
