The Fundamentals of Project Management for HR Professionals
If you want to improve the efficiency and productivity of your HR team exponentially, not just in terms of one-off projects but also in terms of ongoing HR tasks, it’s time to equip your HR team with project management skills.
Here’s how project management can help HR professionals:
• Enable you to plan out your team projects to ensure that you do not overloading your staff with work.
• Use time management and tracking tools to gain clarity in how your team is progressing with work which could help achieve buy-in regarding team priorities when there are conflicts or limited resources.
• Achieve overall visibility into your teams’ commitments to identify and resolve potential timing conflicts.
• Using project planning methods and frameworks to plan quarterly and annual goals and activities successfully.
• Set clear project milestones and improve communications with other departments and staff through tools such as project reports, dashboards, and status meetings.
• Improve team and stakeholder collaboration to speed up team activities and cut down on the potential for miscommunication.
In this two-day virtual training, you will learn how to use project management tools and skills to help you and your HR team complete many critical activities faster and more effectively. This virtual training masterclass does not lead to a certification, but is aligned with the PMP syllabus. Those taking this can go on to take CAPM or advanced to PMP (to find out more, contact us).
