What you will learn:
President Eisenhower famously said: “A plan is useless, planning is everything.” A plan merely reflects that proper and robust planning has taken place, that the important questions have been asked and incorporated, and that it is appropriately documented. Many project managers support the premise that planning is the critical phase of project management. It identifies what needs to be done, by whom, in what sequence, and at what time. This Elective will present a series of planning questions that facilitate the creation of a plan. The RACI Framework (responsible, accountable, consulted, informed) will also be introduced to establish clear expectations and support the execution of the plan.
In this Elective participants will:
· Understand the importance of planning
· Recognize the value of setting roles and responsibilities
· Identify the major project components
