Description:

What is the recipe to deliver projects successfully? It takes the right ingredients and proper amount of time to deliver a successful project. If you skip the crucial ingredients of a recipe it doesn’t turn out perfect. If you use more than required ingredients then also it doesn’t turn out perfect. So, where is the sweet spot?

A right balance of ingredients and managing them throughout the duration of cooking results in a perfect dish. The same is the case with project management processes. If you select the right processes and follow them consistently you end up with a successful Project. With these ingredients/processes you can also turn around projects that have gone south, and get them back to life.

There are eight key ingredients to delivering a successful Project:

1. Project Charter

2. Stakeholder Register

3. WBS (Work Breakdown Structure)

4. Resource Allocation

5. Schedule (Time Line)

6. Communication Plan

7. Risk Register

8. Performance Reporting

Any one or more ingredients you miss in your project will surely lead to unanticipated roadblocks and dead ends. If these steps/ingredients are followed consistently, you end up with successful execution of a project. With these ingredients you can also turn around projects that have failed badly and get them back to life.

In this course, you will learn to utilize the key project management processes and learn the key ingredients to deliver a successful project.
