Summer Project Management Workshop



With innovation happening more than ever, the new agile project economy requires more and more people across organizations to manage projects successfully. The problem is very few people receive formal training on how to do it.

No wonder 65% of all projects fail each year!

The good news is—unofficial project managers can build confidence to lead high-value projects and engage teams in a way that inspires them to volunteer their best efforts.

Join the Office of Workplace Learning for FranklinCovey's "Project Management Essentials for the Unofficial Project Manager" and learn how Success = Value + People + Process.

What: 6-hour course, reviewed and approved by the Project Management Institute, taught in 3 weekly 2-hour sessions
When: Thursdays, June 6, 13, and 20, from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Where: Live instructor-led, via Zoom, from your own comfortable location
How: Register on Training Tracker for course #300-462



Project Management for the Unofficial Project Manager combines best practices from agile and waterfall project management to equip learners with the mindset, skillset, and toolset to engage and inspire team members.

Success starts with the core agile principle of value—a project must deliver value to an organization. Once value is established, it is people who make projects successful through a consistent process.

This course will help learners:

  • Build strong informal authority that inspires project teams to consistently volunteer their best efforts.
  • Utilize a consistent process to start and finish high-value projects on time and with quality.
  • Influence and engage others to define a clear project scope, including clear deliverables and risk strategies.
  • Model openness and agility to apply proactive change management and deliver high-value projects.

Participants receive:

  • Participant Guidebook
  • Pocket Card Set
  • Project Management Toolkit

Register on Training Tracker for course #300-462. Only 20 seats available.

OWL covers the majority of the $194/person cost, with departments only paying $50 using an index at time of registration. Take advantage of this special discounted offer only available this Summer.

Site Manager Update



 

This announcement is intended for users of Weber State's content management system (CMS), Site Manager.
Site Manager has been updated to prevent multiple users from simultaneously making website edits on the same webpage, and therefore losing all or part of those changes. 

Now, if a user has clicked "edit" and has opened a page, a notification appears showing if another user is currently editing that same page along with the username of the other user. If you disregard this and click “edit” anyway, you are met with a second warning window communicating that the page is being edited by someone else, and therefore any changes you make might be lost. 

This notification system is also in effect for yourself as a user. If you have a page open to edit it, the notification will display your own username to make you aware you already have an edit window open. 

Questions can be directed to Anna Burleson in Marketing & Communications.
