    The Basics of Good Project Management

    The Basics of Good Project Management

    Project management is a discipline that is in great and ever-increasing demand—across all industries and at business organizations of all sizes. It is so ubiquitous now that it has evolved from a specialized technical skill to a life skill.

    Despite its wide proliferation, there remain key concepts that apply to all projects, regardless of size or budget. In this lecture, Greta Blash will outline these key principles to help attendees understand what is involved in successfully managing a project, from initiating and planning, to monitoring and controlling the effort, and, ultimately, to the final completion of the project.

    This lecture is a special presentation of CalSouthern’s Master Lecture Series brought to you in partnership with The Project Management Institute’s Orange County chapter.

    Best Practices in Project Management - Coping with Conflict

    Best Practices in Project Management - Coping with Conflict

    Nothing damages a good relationship like a bad conflict. Imagine how much stronger your relationships would be if you really understood what makes people tick—when things are going well and when there is conflict and opposition.

    As project managers, we are often faced with difficult situations and must constantly resolve conflicts with our stakeholders or team members. Most of us are conflict averse and want to avoid them—and it’s understandable: what you think is the right way to handle a conflict may be perceived as the wrong way by the other person.

    When you choose to have a nice conflict, you’re applying an approach that gets you the results you seek while leaving the relationship stronger and restoring the self-worth of everyone involved. This approach also strengthens relationships by enabling individuals and teams to deploy their individual strengths while enhancing communication, trust, empathy and productive relationships.

    Learning Objectives:
    Upon completion of the lecture, participants will be able to demonstrate an understanding of:

    • A practical approach to managing and preventing conflicts.
    • A relational awareness of conflict that yields tangible results while enhancing relationships.
    • Ways to identify conflict triggers in oneself and others.
