Project Management for Human Resources: 3 Day In-Person Seminar - HRCI & SHRM Approved Event


Project Management for Human Resources: 3 Day In-Person Seminar - HRCI & SHRM Approved Event



HR Managers are asked to juggle a wide variety of assignments and add on special ones as needed. In many companies, the people, who formerly performed specialized tasks, are gone, along with their expertise. The work still needs to be done and HR Managers are called on to take on this work as a 'project.' The 'project' is added to an already full schedule, major decisions have been made elsewhere, and you may have no team to carry out the work. Most HR folks are not trained as project managers and may struggle with getting everything done effectively and efficiently. The basics of project management are universal and many of the tools are easy to use. Get the results your organization expects applying these fundamental approaches to tackle special assignments and integrate all your assignments into a project you manage productively and systematically.

You are already good at getting different stakeholders to cooperate because of your excellent communication skills. Build on these and use more sophisticated tools to get project results. Continually improve your existing skills in project management, communication, understanding human nature, and working across organizational lines. As you lead more successful projects, you will have new challenges. Be ready to take a deeper dive into advanced project management standards and their application to your situation. This can be overwhelming on top of your many responsibilities and priorities. Develop a plan to integrate new skills and tools systematically and continuously.

In this practical seminar, you will learn to: plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time, on budget, on target; prevent scope creep, stop firefighting, and put your effort into solving the problem; define potential risks and develop contingency plans; use simple tools to manage projects of any size; and provide stakeholders with the results they expect.



As a result of this program, HR professionals will be able to

Recognize the “business problem” before the project begins

Organize tasks easily into logical groups of activities

Create a project plan to guide all your efforts

Hone organizational skills: Manage your project 'team'

even if there is none

Communicate even more effectively; Keep critical stakeholders involved

Avoid major project pitfalls; Track progress; Recognize slippage quickly

Anticipate and manage project risk

Lead effective project meetings

Meet project objectives; Demonstrate successful project completion

Bring in projects on time, on budget, and on target

Apply Lessons Learned to the next project.


This program is highly interactive, with many workshops, activities, and a Case Study. In the Case Study you will apply all the tools and techniques and lock in your learning. You will leave with many resources and a plan to implement what you have learned back at work.




Self-taught project managers seeking enrichment training and new skills

Project teams having trouble juggling their tasks and responsibilities


We recommend CFO’s, Senior Managers and any officer with a reporting team to attend the Seminar because they are the ones who get the request for time-off and how they manage these requests can often determine whether the company will be liable for discrimination, leave retaliation or leave interference.
