This is a 2-part Project Management Learning Lab series presented by faculty from the Institute for High Quality Care.

Project Management Learning Lab – Part 1

IHQC’s Project Management Learning Labs build the skills needed to manage large and small-scale quality and practice transformation initiatives. These learning labs are ideal for staff at all project management skill levels and degree of project involvement — for those whose primary responsibilities are to manage these initiatives, as well as team members who support components of an initiative. In a shifting healthcare environment that includes payment reform initiatives like CalAIM, diverse grant opportunities, and cross-sector partnerships, project management skills can help individuals, teams, and organizations navigate the changes that lie ahead. The first session in this 2-part series will focus on the technical tools of project management, and the second session will focus on change management and communications.

During this training, participants will:

  • Identify the project life cycle components and typical associated tasks
  • Use a Driver Diagram to inform key areas of the Project Management Plan
  • Understand strategic approaches for planning and leading effective meetings
  • Increase awareness of a variety of task management tools and approaches
