January Workshop Quality in Project Management and Project Management in Quality



Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017
9:00 am to noon


A project is a temporary endeavor with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.  Project managers must plan, perform, and control quality for their projects.  As quality professionals we must also see ourselves as project managers and manage our audits, RCCA, and improvement activities as projects. This workshop will be broken into two parts with the first covering quality in project management and the second identifying techniques that quality professionals can use.

Presented by:

Faculty from the University of Kansas Project Management Department http://pmgt.ku.edu/people
