Description

Without a compass and a set of guiding principles, project teams are too often left adrift, unable to achieve their objectives or defend their place within organizations. In this course, Gauging Project Team Performance, you'll gain the skills to ensure that what you’re measuring and what you’re doing are aligned to generate results. First, you’ll learn how to define project objectives and requirements in a way that guides your team’s efforts effectively, and allows you to measure your achievement in meeting underlying needs. Next, you’ll learn how project progress may be measured across a variety of domains, and the role of change management in ensuring successful results. Finally, you’ll learn how project objectives can be leveraged in gauging the performance of team members, and how team performance may be nurtured by team leaders and members alike. By the end of this course, you’ll have the knowledge of what separates focused, mission-driven project teams from those that never quite reach a finish line that was never fully defined.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course, Gauging Project Team Performance. Without a compass and a set of guiding principles, project teams are too often left to drift, unable to achieve their objectives or defend their place within organizations. In this course, you'll gain the skills to ensure that what you're measuring and what you're doing are aligned to generate results. First, you'll learn how to define project objectives and requirements in a way that guides your team's efforts effectively and allows you to measure your achievement in meeting underlying needs. Next, you'll learn how project progress may be measured across a variety of domains and the role of change management and ensuring successful results. Finally, you'll learn how project objectives can be leveraged in gauging the performance of team members and how team performance may be nurtured by team leaders and members alike. By the end of this course, you'll have the knowledge of what separates focused, mission driven, project teams from those that never quite reach a finish line that was never fully defined. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with some of the principles of project management, in order to better relate to the material that we'll discuss. This course is part of several series here at Pluralsight, including our Siris on Project Management, which can help you prepare for the PMP and other certification exams, as well as our agile transformation for leaders and team members series. This course can also help you earn continuing education credits toward project management certifications like PMP and is a great resource for you even if you're just looking to learn more about project management. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how you can set and meet project goals with Gauging Project Team Performance, here a Pluralsight.
