Workshop - Smartsheet for Project Leaders that #GSD

Description

We’ve learned that Project Management Tools are a lot like choosing the best motorcycle; it all depends on what you plan to do with it. If you want to go 180 miles per hour on a straight stretch of freeway, a sportbike is the best. If you’re going to ride on the dirt or sand, then a dirt bike is best. And if you want to cruise around and take in the sights, a cruiser is the way to go.



120VC clients all ascribe to different tools. Some use MS Project; others use Smartsheet, etc… so they remain flexible and figure out how to apply their Project Leadership best practices to their client’s PM Tool “Du Jour.” Only Excel is NEVER the best PM tool.



So eventually, you have to select a tool that isn’t Excel; now what? It’s time to use it to Get Sh*t Done! The first step, sign up for a training course and learn how to use the tool. But wait… Did you want to learn how the tool works? Or do you want to learn how to use the tool to ROCK a project all the way to completion?



Join J. Scott, Founder @120VC and author of “The Irreverent Guide to Project Management, An Agile Approach to Enterprise Project Management,” and “It’s Never Just Business, It’s About People,” on a journey that will teach you how to use Smartsheet to ROCK a project all the way to completion. A bonus is that you will be able to apply the best practices you learn to any tool.



Workshop Outcomes:

   - Learn how to define a Project with Smartsheet and get BUY-IN effectively.

   - Learn why approval is NOT the same as BUY-IN.

   - Learn how to use Smartsheet to plan a project and eliminate 99% of the avoidable risk.

   - Work with a breakout group to develop a tight "Work Plan" in Smartsheet.
