Today Administrative Professionals perform many operations once performed by specialists. These activities are actually “projects.” Because management doesn’t recognize these assignments as projects, few Administrative Professionals receive training or tools to help manage the work efficiently and effectively. Work is added to an already full schedule, major decisions have been made elsewhere, and you have no “team” to help. Administrative Professionals can and do plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time and on budget. Adapt widely-used approaches to manage projects successfully while avoiding the biggest pitfalls for any project manager. You do not need to be called a project manager to be a successful one. Carry these new skills into all your assignments to enhance your existing good performance. Prepare to take on more advanced work and demonstrate your value and progress.
Faced with a large new assignment and no experience of working on this type of activity or anything this large, it is easy to lose confidence. As you move forward and hit roadblocks or potential risks become reality, you may be ready to quit. Mastering the fundamentals of Project Management, usedby millions of people on millions of projects throughout the world, you will be in a strong position to prevail and prosper. Banish your doubts with proven techniques that help you get the successful results you need.
