Managing Projects: Move from Stress to Success

Build your project management toolkit!

We all wear many hats in our organizations and can often feel pulled in many directions. Managing the competing priorities of time, resources, deadlines, and costs can feel daunting and overwhelming.

Whether you’re leading the team, managing programs, cultivating volunteers, or monitoring budgets, it’s essential to have good systems and processes in place to ensure mission success.

This workshop will help executive directors, board members, and program staff more effectively track projects to better manage priorities, tasks, and resources. Join the Johnson Center’s senior project manager and senior program manager to build your project management toolkit!

Key outcomes:

  • Understand the basic principles of project management
  • Use the quality triangle to keep projects on track
  • Leverage the work breakdown structure to engage staff and volunteers more effectively
