Please mark your calendars and join us for the ATD Suncoast Sarasota Geographic Interest Group (GIG) Meeting on October 11, 2016 at 6 pm.
Andrew Mundell, PMP®, is a Project Manager with Goodwill Industries-Manasota, Inc. Andrew started at Goodwill as a desktop support technician; within months he became the IS Manager with a team of six reporting to him in three time zones. With a department that handles some kind of technology failure every day, Andrew noticed that many of these fixes became projects. Now, as a member of the Project Management team, he helps many Goodwill departments apply project management techniques, ensuring timely implementation. We are very fortunate to have Andrew present at our October meeting on the topic: It needed to be done the day before yesterday!
Many of us in the Training field are continuously approached to create new courseware, which are essentially projects – and yes, everyone wants it done the day before yesterday! Andrew will explain how project management skills can be applied using the five Project Management Institute (PMI) phases: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Controlling, and Closing. He will demonstrate how these five project management phases align with the ADDIE phases of Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation, helping us manage training projects in a business environment.
