Whether it’s applying for a grant or developing a new program or creating a new organization, much of the work done by nonprofits is project work and can benefit from effective planning and tracking. Textbook approaches to project management can seem overwhelming and complex – because they are. But the fundamental steps to effectively manage projects are straightforward and easy to understand. This session will explain, in simple terms and with real examples, what it takes to plan and execute the type of projects most of us deal with in the social sector.
- Define what makes something a project·
- Understand the steps and tools used to plan a project
- Be able to estimate how long a project will take and how much it will cost
- Effectively track project progress and communicate it to your team
