People in many job titles are asked to take on "other duties as assigned." Learn to manage these special assignments successfully using the techniques and approaches of formal Project Management. You do not need a title to acquire and master these processes effectively and efficiently. Enhance your skills and get the results your organization expects of you.

In today's highly competitive work environment, after years of “right-sizing," many operations formerly performed by experts or even whole organizational units, no longer have these resources. Management calls on individuals to perform these special assignments. Learn to apply the organizational techniques and approaches of formal project management.

These management skills for administrative professionals and non-project managers and HR professionals have a track record of success on most types of "extra" work you are assigned. Follow the clear roadmap of tasks and use simple tools to plan, execute, monitor, and control your work and also to learn effective time management skills.

Draw on readily available resources to complete your work to management's satisfaction and praise. Formal project management is designed for efficiency and effectiveness and you will benefit not only in your project work but in your regular assignments.


You do not need to reinvent the wheel, struggle to get results on time and on budget, or depend on a "to-do list." The Project Management Body of Knowledge has been established by expert project managers around the world and in every economic sector. Benefit from their knowledge and experience as you adapt proven approaches to understanding the business problem you are being asked to solve, organizing and planning the work, monitoring your progress and delivering the products, services, or information you were asked to produce.

Build effective time management skills and other skills you can apply to every task, daily routine, or special assignment.
