Managing Projects Effectively for Administrative Professionals

Managing Projects Effectively for Administrative Professionals

Don’t be in a panic the next time a project is dropped on your desk. Learn to effectively manage projects to meet expectations and maintain budget. In today’s world, many operations once performed by specialists are assigned to administrative professionals as “projects.” However, few administrative professionals receive training or tools to help them manage projects efficiently and effectively. The “project” is added to an already full schedule, major decisions have been made elsewhere, and you have no “team” to carry out the work. As a result of this topic, administrative professionals will be able to plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time and on budget. Many projects fail because they have no focusing definition. Administrative professionals will be able to create a business problem statement to prevent scope creep and put all effort into solving the problem. You will define potential risks and determine which ones will require contingency plans. You will learn to use simple tools to manage projects of any size and provide stakeholders with the results they expect.
