Getting Project Results without Authority

  • Course Code: Catalogs - Getting Project Results without Authority
  • Course Dates: Contact us to schedule.
  • Course Category: Leadership Duration: 1 Days

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.
