When you’re a project manager or project leader with team of people who don’t technically report to you, your obvious challenge is to produce results whether you have authority or not. This workshop delivers proven techniques for controlling projects and managing diverse teams in a constantly changing environment, while bringing those projects to successful closure. The concepts covered in this workshop are essential for all project managers, with or without authority, because they offer a proven productive alternative to “command and control” management techniques that can easily backfire.

The approaches described in this course will help you get successful project results from diverse, cross-functional, virtual, outsourced, and other types of project teams by showing how to establish and nurture a high performance environment. Join Lee R. Lambert, a Founder of PMP and a PMI Fellow, to learn the secret of establishing and benefiting from the power of inspired and involved project contributors. During his 50+ years in the profession Lambert has been there, done that, and got the T-shirt when it comes to creating high performance teams. Typically these teams deliver 40-50% increased productivity. Let Lee show you how you can achieve these same results on your projects.
