Project Management Strategies for HR Professionals

OnDemand Webinar (92 minutes)

HR professionals are asked to juggle a wide variety of assignments and add on special ones as needed.In many companies, the people, who formerly performed specialized tasks, are gone, along with their expertise. The work still needs to be done and HR managers are called on to take on this work as a project. The project is added to an already full schedule, major decisions may have been made elsewhere, and you may have no team to carry out the work. Most HR folks are not trained as project managers and may struggle with getting everything done effectively and efficiently. The basics of project management are universal and many of the tools are easy to use. Get the results your organization expects applying these fundamental approaches to tackle special assignments and integrate all your assignments into a project you manage productively and systematically. In this practical topic, you will learn to: plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time, on budget, on target; put your effort into solving the problem; define potential risks and develop contingency plans; use simple tools to manage projects of any size; and provide stakeholders with the results they expect.
