Managing the launch of a new learning solution, promoting and managing employee engagement, and monitoring usage rates and gathering feedback to present an ROI are part of L&D professional’s everyday role but they are also essential elements to project management.

The Top 5 Soft Skills of Project Management 

When we talk about the skills of project management, the focus is usually on the so-called ‘hard skills’. However, just as important are those essential soft skills that can make or break a project.

The People side of Project Management 

L&D is the business of people but projects are sometimes looked at as ‘things’ rather than as a group of individuals coming together to create something. The People side of Project Management addresses this gap by looking at why people are so difficult to manage on a project, who those people are and how to manage them better. 

Managing a Project Across the Project Life Span 

One of the major challenges facing project management today is the confusion between two critical concepts, this eBook discusses them and how to apply these concepts to L&D.
