Project Management 101: Develop a More Successful Team With ROCKET | Recorded Webinar

Project Management 101: Develop a More Successful Team With ROCKET | Live Webinar

60 minutes

Project Management seems complicated and scary, but it is FUN!  Really! PM is a critical aptitude that can be used by anyone who knows the four steps, including L&D (learning and development).  It’s just common sense.  You can’t get projects done if you are unable to get the right people, objectives, and influencer (example, Project Sponsor).  When teams are working together, whether virtual or face-to-face, simple project steps keep teams glued and effective.

In this interactive webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Get your people and teams to work together.
    What are the roles that you will need for your project?  Start with the Project Sponsor – this is the leader who likely asked for the project and is now overseeing the project.  The Project Sponsor is more effective when s/he is not working in the project, just overseeing the management of budgets and constraints.  The Project Manager who usually reports to the Project Sponsor, is responsible for tracking all the moving pieces as the project is built.  Note that it is usually best to have ONE Project Sponsor and ONE Project Manager.   Finally, the Project Team acts as the working assets that create and build.  There will likely be a lot of those in and out of the build.
  • Learn, collaborate, and launch needed projects.
    Projects are very much like puzzles.  When a project team is working together, there must be constant communication.  If the people involved are not communicating well, the project will be challenged.   All the people working on the project must be flexible while also playing within their roles.  It’s always tempting to jump into something on a project that is not yours – don’t do it.
  • Differentiate between Projects, Processes and Roles.
    This one can be a bit confusing at first because the titles seem the same.  A Project (for example, build a new workshop), has a beginning and end but a Process (for example, payroll), goes forever – it doesn’t end. Weird, right?


Projects start with people who need something done, just like all of us. In business, we have to balance key criteria: Quality, Speed and Realism. You’ll never get everything you want done, but you will learn how to prioritize these three.

We use four key phases to identify the four parts of a simple project: Define (Sketch the Charter), Plan (Build the Pieces), Manage (Work with others / compromise) and Review (Learn from the Past). We also remind ourselves that the same first four letters (DPMR) can be used to DARE to PROPERLY MANAGE RESOURCES on all the work we do.
