Localisation Project Management - “Make it clear, keep it simple, make it happen.”
Description and program
This is the first presentation in a series of six 75 minute instructor-led modules to give Localisation professionals an overview of a simple effective process for managing projects successfully. This series is designed for people whose job it is to manage localisation projects so that schedule, quality and cost goals are achieved. The focus is on simple messages and techniques so that participants can improve their project management performance as soon as they return to the workplace.
What is it about?
The content of the first module is outlined below. The instructor will present each module in 45 – 60 minutes, illustrating the points with examples from his experience. Questions can be addressed during the module. At the end of each module a general Q&A will be held, lasting for 15 to 30 minutes.
Module 1. Mission
This module deals with the most important item – making a good start to a project by putting in the time to understand exactly what must be done. We will discuss how to do this in an efficient way, and the importance of ensuring that all participants in the project, including stakeholders, are aware of the project goals, and agree with them. The key topics covered are:
• What is to be done? When will it be finished?
• Who cares?
• How do they ask you? Examples of requests, good and bad
• How do you commit?
• Do you commit? What is “Best practice”?
• Examples of goal statements, and good and bad practices
• Lessons Learned*
*A feature of the workshop is the “Lesson Learned” section which summarises the key points and learnings at the end of each module.
What will I get out of it?
Participants will get an outline of a simple effective framework to help them manage projects more successfully.
