3-Hour Virtual Seminar on Project Management Strategies for HR Professionals

180 Minutes

Recorded Webinar


In today's world, many operations once performed by specialists are assigned to Human Resource professionals as 'projects.' Few HR professionals receive training or tools to help them manage projects efficiently and effectively. The 'project' is added to an already full schedule, major decisions have been made elsewhere, and you may have no 'team' to carry out the work. HR professionals must learn to plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time and on budget and be recognized as valued contributors. HR professionals will lead the way in keeping everyone focused on solving the business problem, preventing scope creep, and getting the results the organization needs. You will define potential risks and create contingency plans. You will learn to use simple tools to manage projects of any size and provide stakeholders with the results they expect.

Learning Objectives

As a result of this webinar, HR Professionals will be able to:

  • Define the “business problem” at the heart of this assignment
  • Organize tasks to create a project plan to guide all your efforts
  • “Manage” your project “team” even if you don’t have one
  • Keep critical stakeholders informed and involved
  • Track progress and recognize quickly when things are slipping
  • Lead effective project meetings
  • Demonstrate successful project completion
  • Apply lessons learned to the next project or special assignment

Why Should You Attend

HR Professionals are often given "extra" assignments. When we look at these special requests, we realize they can be managed as projects, even though they may not be called projects. Project Management is the art and science of getting results by turning customers desires into concrete products, services or information. Learn to follow established procedures in a defined sequence to get the results your manager expects. Organizations use projects to achieve their strategic needs, which cannot be attained through everyday operations. A project is a problem scheduled for a solution. The key to a successful project is beginning with a clear definition of the business problem: What is the gap between what we have and what we want? Your ability to define and solve the business problem, whether you are in the public, private or nonprofit sector, will create success.
