In general, when we talk about a project, we mean a sequence of interdependent steps and tasks that lead to the delivery of a finished good or service. Usually there is a client, an end-user, a project sponsor and a team of people to work on the tasks, sometimes together, sometimes alone. The project has a discrete budget and an established time frame. So, project management then becomes the means to ensure quality product delivery, on time and on-budget.

This workshop is about creating success through people. It goes beyond the basic principles for project management to look at the art of working and communicating with people connected to the project. Within a five-step process for project planning and management, we will also study the human side, addressing issues such as qualifying the need for the product, scoping the project, team work and accountability, communications, and risk management.

But for many people, day-to-day work is not centred around one or two projects, but rather a series of unrelated tasks, whose priority shift with the blowing snow. Bosses are always coming with new and more priorities. The crucial things to manage here is not project milestones, but rather an individual's time, setting priorities and ensuring that the unimportant does not creep in to push out the true priorities. This is the case, not for project management, but for time management.
