The Project Manager: Project Monitoring, Communication and Conflict Resolution - Module 2

Will the milestones be reached? What are the critical factors? Which problems have to be solved in which order? These are typical project management questions you will deal with intensively on this 3-day seminar using selected practical examples.

Another focus is on the "soft" skills in process management. Often, it is not the "hard" facts causing projects to fail. Rather, it is important in all projects that everyone involved pulls together – and in the same direction. Communication strategies and solution-oriented conflict resolution are essential for successful teamwork. In this seminar, you will learn methods and leadership knowledge with which you can confidently master the demands on the management of teamwork – and manage your projects significantly better.
