Are you juggling a full-time job with the responsibility of leading projects? You're not alone! Many employees today find themselves wearing multiple hats, and project management often becomes an additional task on their plate.

But fear not! This interactive and practical workshop is designed specifically for part-time project managers like you. Here, you'll learn the essential skills and tools you need to lead projects successfully without getting burnt out.

What You'll Learn:

    • Immediately apply the acquired knowledge and skills to your actual project.
    • Develop a concrete plan for successful project execution.
  • Leave the workshop feeling confident and empowered with your project already Kicked-Off!
