About the class
Any Enterprise Transformation initiative, whether through Process Reengineering or Lean Six Sigma is an expensive and risky undertaking. If the objective is breakthrough performance improvement, the project may extend for anywhere from one to eight months and consume not only funding resources, but also huge amounts of intellectual capital of people whom otherwise would be doing something else. This course gives you an in-depth immersion into the world of Project Leadership by teaching you how to initiate, plan, control, and complete your projects more efficiently and effectively. Project Management is defined as “the application of concepts, techniques, and principles to optimize project success”. The course provides practical concepts, techniques, and tools you can use to ensure your Process Reengineering, Lean Six Sigma, or other Performance Improvement project gets the results you need to be competitive!
Project Management brings a much-needed discipline to the process improvement effort by defining key work activities and resources that are needed to efficiently and effectively execute the Lean Six Sigma project. Many times the project crosses many functional and departmental boundaries and requires an ability to be both the analyst and the politician. Add to that the need for the team to keep on track and on budget and you have a very delicate balance indeed. Project Management skills are critical!
