Creating a Project Leadership Culture Based on
PMP Best Practices

Project managers drive change not just through facilitating projects to on-budget and on-time delivery, they drive change by educating company leadership on what constitutes effective project management. Company leadership can hinder the success of a project by failing to do their due diligence prior to project initiation and/or changing baseline priorities with regards to project scope, time and cost once a project has launched. It is the project manager’s responsibility to mitigate this risk up-front in a project by educating company leadership on what constitutes a solid project charter and project management plan. Project managers hurt their ability to drive change to facilitate effective project management by failing to use basic tools taught in PMP education that if used could help avoid “management creep” into a project.

The presentation focuses on four topics:

1. Project Sponsor: Areas For Improvement
2. Project Managers: Observations in Excellence
3.Project Manager: Areas for Improvement
4. Project Managers as Change Agents
