Course Description:

Professionals in the health care, community engagement, and not-for-profit sectors have quietly slipped into the role of the unofficial project manager. Often, this new role comes with little to no preparation.

Through this workshop, participants will acquire the knowledge, skills, and professional attributes to consistently complete projects successfully. They will learn to implement a disciplined approach to carry out projects and to inspire team members through the principles and practices of informal authority.

People + Process = Success

Project management isn't just about managing logistics and hoping that the team gets to the finish line. More than ever before, the skills of informal authority and commitment to evidence-based practices are vital. Moreover, in health, community, and non-profit situations, the need to manage projects well is integral to the health and social well being of individuals and communities.

This program is being offered in partnership by the Hamilton Health Sciences Centre for People Development and McMaster University Centre for Continuing Education.

  • bring a project to work on during the program
