Rapid Project PlanTM (RPP) is a highly focused Project Management consultative workshop that uses Microsoft Project and Project Catalyst and leverages the knowledgebase of 6Ds Industry Best Practices or your organization's internal methods to help you accelerate the development of realistic project plans including tasks, resources, estimates, risk identification and major deliverables. RPP ensures that the team members and key stakeholders share a common and clear understanding of their mission, roles, risks and steps defined in their plans.
RPP workshop combines Project Management principles with process management to accelerate the development of an actual project plan and major deliverables for your project. It is a very focused and "time-boxed" approach that combines the elements of training with the best practices to create actual project deliverables. Participants understand the basics of Project Management and how its principles are applied to their specific project and assignments.
Microsoft Project can greatly assist you in better managing your projects across the organization. But, tools are not all that are required.
