They really enjoyed the classes, so I thought I would give it a shot!” According to Debbie, “I had a great experience at UWM.

Influence Without Authority

Lean Project Management

Understand the working dynamics of your organization: the nature of power and influence, your own personal sources and style of influencing others, and how to leverage your power to get things done. The ability to exercise influence without authority is one of the most important skills an individual can master. In fact, accomplishing tasks and projects often requires it, even when you may not have the formal authority to mandate action.

Project stakeholders must ensure that project management processes, supporting tools and techniques are used to expedite work by focusing on value-added activities and resources. Using situations based on real-world events, simulate the impact on a project by incorporating continuous process improvement to deliver results on time and within budget.
