Course Level



Does your organization work on more than one project at a time? Are there limitations to the type and amount of human and other resources for project assignments?

Are your projects taking longer and longer to complete? Are results less than optimal because of time pressures on resources? Would you like to increase project “throughput”?

Succeeding in today’s competitive marketplace often requires cycle time reduction - reducing the duration of projects, and getting results faster. This workshop will address managing multiple projects within the context of program or product management. 

Planning and managing individual projects is challenging. When introducing the real-life limitation of resources and other outside influences into the multi-project environment, those challenges are magnified and new challenges are introduced. 

This interactive workshop will position you for immediate action. The goal of this course is to equip you with the necessary knowledge, skills, and techniques so that you can effectively and productively manage multiple projects.
