  • 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Rubbermaid/Irwin Training Center
Presenter: David Carmichael & Mike Rasmussen

Managing the training deliverables during a project is often like being the last person off the bench on a losing basketball team.  Your starters have dug a hole that is seemingly too deep to get out of and you're entering the game with only a few minutes

What to expect from this program:

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
• List typical obstacles to overcome when managing a training project as part of a larger program
• Explain the proper front-end steps to execute when you know the production phase will be condensed
• Discuss critical success factors for training components of technology and business process re-engineering projects
• Identify project potential risks and risk mitigation strategies for training projects
• Compare the advantages and disadvantages of developing training concurrently with system development
