Business Process Improvement for Project Champions
"Business Process Improvement: An Introduction" is a prerequisite to this course.
Change in the way we do things in organizations is a project in itself. But with change, there is resistance. The project champion’s job is getting the team or organization ready to undertake change, but it is not a job we can do alone and it requires knowledge tools for rapid change planning and project management.
The time we spend together will guide you through planning, executing, monitoring, adjusting and closing a successful process improvement project. We will address questions such as how to secure management support and engage others essential to project success. You will gain hands-on experience with tools for scoping (defining the work to be done) of a project and managing team engagement. These tools include a team protocol, communications plan and step-by-step project champion roadmap.
This course can provide up to 6 PDUs / contact hours towards attaining or maintaining the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation. Participants must submit the request to PMI via the Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS).
Professional Development Units are allocated according to the number of training hours completed by the student and may be granted by increments of 0.25 PDU for each 15 minutes of training. A participation certificate will be given to students who attend a minimum of 75% of the course.
