Facilitating Key Project Meetings
Facilitating Key Project Meetings

Whether you are new to Project Management, a seasoned project management professional or a facilitator of project teams, you know that project management is about influencing others. And most of that influence happens in a series of meetings.

Are your meetings dynamic, highly engaging interactions where problems are solved and decisions made? Or are they static, boring and frustrating? This course provides the key skills needed to design and facilitate the meetings essential to project success.

The course provides two breakthroughs in learning. First, you will learn how to design meetings that work. You will see the process design demonstrated and use templates and models to create your own high quality meetings. Second, you will experience leading key project meetings the way they should be led. Every participant will both design and facilitate their own meetings, and receive peer and instructor feedback on their strengths and areas for improvement.

Participants carry away the experiences, feedback and models needed to facilitate project meetings. They also receive a workbook that is unique in the industry in that it contains custom meeting processes for the five key project management meetings: stakeholder interviews, project kick-off, project working committee, project steering committee, and post-implementation review.

  • Project Leaders (managers, coordinators)
  • Facilitators who advise or assist Project Leaders in meeting design and/or facilitation.
  • Project Sponsors
  • Project Stakeholders or Project Team members
  • Facilitating Meetings With Ease or Facilitating Meetings That Work (or comparable foundation facilitation skills training)
  • A workbook filled with templates, reminders and methods they can refer to when transitioning new skills to the meeting room
  • Certificate of Completion
