Planning and
Managing the Project

Available for customized presentation on client site.

Project management basics for First Nation staff.

This intensive one-day workshop is designed for First Nations staff responsible for the planning, design, implementation and evaluation of community projects.


Increasingly, First Nations managers and supervisors are required to assume responsibility for the coordination of diverse community-based projects ranging from organizational capacity to infrastructure development; and, often under the pressure of constraints on resources, finances and time.  For many, the experience is one of trial and error. 


This workshop will provide participants with practical tips to set goals and objectives, establish realistic timelines, budgets and deliverables; to manage teams and contractors; and to monitor and report on project progress, performance, and achievement.


This workshop will be especially helpful for staff new to project management responsibilities; staff who anticipate moving to the role of project manager; or, staff with project management experience who are looking to improve their skills. 

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will understand their role as project manager and team leader.  They will be better able to: 

  • understand the principles of project management;

  • plan, organize and schedule tasks, activities, resources and deliverables;

  • develop and maintain budgets;

  • manage internal and contracted resources;

  • establish deliverables and evaluation criteria; and,

  • establish a process for monitoring, assessing and reporting on project activities.


As a value-added bonus, all workshop participants are provided with up to 3 sessions of personalized follow-up coaching during the first month following the workshop.
