You've just been named as the project manager for your organization's new data initiative! The only problem is that you're a data professional, not a project manager. Where do you begin?
If you've ever been in this situation, you know that a CDMP and a PMP are very different professions with different skill sets. You don't have years to gain experience. You need help – NOW!
Fortunately, help has arrived. This session will familiarize participants with the Kentucky Project Management Framework. The framework is designed to work for all skill level project managers from those on their first assignment to those with decades of experience.
This session will provide you with:
- A basic understanding of project management fundamentals
- Access to the Kentucky Project Management Framework when you return to your workplace
- Access to the complete set of project management templates developed by the Kentucky Enterprise Project Management Office
