This program deals with a difficult reality in supporting and managing contemporary projects: How to effectively work with virtual teams and tightly-coupled projects that are spread across time, space, and cultures to deliver on-time results. The participants will learn practical skills for communicating, coordinating, and collaborating on complex projects when co location is not an option. Furthermore, the "distance manager" will learn how manage distributed projects given little, if any, direct control over resources, work habits, or individual job performance. Web-based tools for enhancing communication and collaboration on projects will also be covered.
Note: This is a content-focused program that deals with topics and challenges beyond the general principles of managing people and projects. It can also be customized to deal with challenges that are unique to the client's organization.
