Join Daniel Stanton for an in-depth discussion in this video Prerequisites, part of Leading Projects.
- There are no prerequisites for this course about project leadership. And don't worry, you don't need to have experience with one piece of software or another. This course is designed with project managers in mind. But it will also be useful for project sponsors and for team members who are all leaders in some way and who all play a role in leading projects. The first time you take this course I recommend you watch all of the videos to learn the best practices and see the process flow that occurs when leading projects.
That way you'll know where to look for the tools and the ideas any time you need them. If you really just want a quick introduction to project leadership, you can also watch the first video in each chapter to get a sense for the key principles. Then you can do a deeper dive into the appropriate sections when you need some new tools for your project leadership toolkit. Some of the videos talk about the basics of project management. Other videos pull in tools and techniques from Six Sigma, Lean, and Change Management.
But all of the videos are designed to help leaders like you understand what to expect from their teams and how to get there.
