This AMS course provides a deep insight to the skills, tools, and techniques associated with Managing Large and Complex Projects, and can be used as part of a progressive curricular, standalone learning experience, or team up-skilling initiative. Managing Large and Complex Projects is a key skill in today’s progressive organizations. Those who have come from small project management to large project or program management know (through painful experience) that there is a vast difference between small and large efforts; and that most small practices don’t “scale-up” well. This course will lead the participants through the distinctions of managing large and complex projects-programs with an emphasis on the required variations in mindset, project management practice and leadership competencies. Participants will enhance their experience by interacting with imbedded scenarios, participating in table exercises, building a personal action plan, and sharing with their peers.
