When you think of “projects,” does your mind immediately jump to the technology departments? IT, R&D, Engineering? It should. While professional managers and business analysts may have first emerged in these technical bastions, they are far from the only positions within a company with projects. In fact, much of what a business does can be considered project-based, and no matter the department, could greatly benefit from management guidance.
Implementing new inventory management procedures is a project. Rolling out a new performance appraisal process is a project. Market research is a project. Year-end accounting is a project. Organizing a sales conference is a project. In short, be it a task that last a few hours or an entire fiscal year, much of the work in your organization is non-technical projects-based.
For most professionals in non-technical fields, however, getting a project management or business analysis certification makes no sense. You don’t need it; the return on investment is simply not there. But you can certainly benefit from knowing a few tricks and tools to make your projects run more smoothly. With a couple days of crash courses and intensive learning, you can help your non-technical project run more smoothly, successfully, and efficiently.
