Looking for a better way to get your most critical projects moving quicker? This fast-paced workshop equips you with a powerful interactive thinking system and a step-by- step process to successfully tackle complex problems, projects, issues, and opportunities of all types.
Learn to apply The Logical Framework Approach (LFA), a breakthrough methodology which systematically links projects to strategic goals. This fresh approach is absent from conventional Project Management methods and has been called “the missing link.” The LFA combines key concepts from Strategic Planning, Project Management, Risk Analysis, and the Scientific Method into a visual matrix that adds exceptional clarity at the “fuzzy front end” of project design.
After learning the core concepts, you’ll apply them for the topic of your choice. Bring along a real project or performance issue to work on, and you’ll leave with a ready-to-use action strategy.
The bottom line: Your projects will start smoother, reach their goals faster, and with fewer problems along the way. Participants will receive Terry Schmidt's latest book, along with a library of application examples.
