PMINLCH Event: [Webinar] Kick-Starting a Project in a Virtual Team


The start of a project will set the tone for its entire duration. Project Kick-Start is a streamlined process with a novel use of project management tools that generate 3 months of progress on a project within 2 weeks duration. This engagement is focused on building out the full breadth of the project scope, a project RAID log, and high-level effort estimates for the project allowing it to be rapidly assessed for viability and providing an accelerated start to the project.

Originally set up to enable Kick-Starting a Project with a largely co-located team, this approach has been adapted to the virtual/remote working team environment we have today. Kick-Starting a Project in a Virtual Team will require extra thought, effort, and the ability to leverage technology in order to produce the same (or even better) results versus when working with your team locally.

In this webinar we will provide recommendations and a hands-on demo to effectively kick-start a project in a virtual team environment, e.g.:

  • Conduct an effective Remote Project Kick-Start
  • Build a Strong Relationship with the Customer from Day 1
  • Use Interactive Technology to build Project Collateral

The outputs of any successful project kick-start include a scope and schedule baseline within the approved budget. A collaborative and efficient mechanism to create key project kick-start collateral and team alignment will enable success as the project progresses.  

In summary, the success of a good project is determined by a productive kick-start. Setting the right tone from the get-go can make or break your project. The absence of face-to-face interactions does not mean we abandon or do less kick-starting, in fact it requires us to do more and to do them better.

Join our 60-minute webinar and learn how to Kick-Start a Project in a Virtual Team.
