Course Abstract

With the need to send employees home to work, the work-from-home movement got a huge boost. What we have found in the board room is a split of three-quarters of the companies are adopting a work from home or a hybrid model. To add to the concern/challenge, there is an additional pressure of the lack of workforce availability and “personal currency” changes in the workforce. To make this move, a change in management style and philosophy has had to take place. That change is not relative to what work has to be done, but how to measure the work product and find milestones for measurement. In English, “don’t worry about how much time is spent “working” and concentrate on production and results.”

So how does this affect Project Management professionals? Project work products now need to be broken down into processes and projects with timelines and deadlines. Yes, it sounds like piece work, but it has been astonishing to learn how much waste is being found in time and money when accounting functions were taken apart.

This course provides an opportunity to earn 3 PDUs in half day.

Presentation outline

This three-hour course provides insight into the evolving work-from-home movement and addressing the challenges and pressures that this new environment brings to assist project management professionals in addressing these new challenges from a personal currency perspective, as well as, when managing projects. You’ll gain a high-level understanding of how to measure the project work products and determine milestones for measurement.

Objective 1: Addressing the challenges and pressures of working from home and adapting to the new work models

Objective 2: Gain an understanding of challenges and best practices when changing and adapting management styles as you move from “how much time you spend on working” to concentrating on production and results by measuring work products and finding/determining milestones for measurement

Objective 3: Learn how to focus on breaking down project work into processes and projects, and in so doing, address the waste that may be found through the actions taken when concentrating on production and results


Provide insight into the project manager’s new focus based on the work-from-home environment as it shifts from time being spent on “working” to concentrating on production and results, and the challenges it brings. Additionally, navigate through the challenging waters of lack of workforce availability, while ensuring a focus on personal currency in order to successfully manage projects in this new environment.
