About this course

Many projects fail because the project manager lacks sufficient control to keep things moving forward on the project. One of the causes for insufficient control may be Lack of Authority. Often projects are taken on in environments where the project manager has little formal authority. As the leader of your project, you must assume control, even if you don’t have the formal organizational authority. This course discusses ways to improve project success, address conflicts and get past the “project manager’s lament” of having limited authority.

Skills acquired & topics covered

  • Leadership vs. Management and how both influence authority
  • What is authority and the sources of authority
  • How EI, Personality types and Conflict management all play into authority
  • Bring together PMIs processes and technique for gaining control
