Technology project planning can seem daunting with so many elements to consider: the technology itself, change management, mapping out a path, and evaluating the success of the project overall. So often, the focus remains on platforms and budgets and neglects the other items that are also critical to successful projects. This full-day interactive training will take you through a framework for addressing key elements of a technology project plan, from planning through implementation and evaluation.
Whether you are working on a plan to support a proposal or grant application or laying the foundation for a project already in the pipeline, this training will give you the practical road map you need to achieve greater success.
Come prepared to ask questions, interact with your peers, and work through a variety of activities to help you put strategies and frameworks to practical application at your organization.
