In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Franklin Covey Co. Launches Project Management Essentials For the Unofficial Project Manager: Anyone Can Be a Successful Project Manager

Franklin Covey Co. (NYSE:FC), a global performance improvement company, announced today the launch of its newest productivity offering, Project Management Essentials™ For the Unofficial Project Manager. The work session was created for every employee in the workplace who manages projects of any kind in their job.

Franklin Covey is offering complimentary live, three-hour marketing overviews of the new work session in 50 cities throughout North America beginning January 15, 2013 through February 12, 2013, and is currently offering live one-hour webinar overviews.

“In today’s knowledge worker world, virtually everyone in the workplace has quietly slipped into the role of unofficial project manager,” said Kory Kogon, Productivity Practice Leader, Franklin Covey Co. “They are managing projects of some type, big or small, without any formal training, which raises the probability of project failure. Scope creep and a lack of process also increase the probability of project failure, costing organizations significant time, money, and employee morale.”

The Project Management Institute (“PMI”), the world’s leading project management member association representing more than 650,000 practitioners in more than 185 countries, conducted its annual global survey in late 2011 of more than 1000 practitioners and project management leaders across a variety of experience levels and industries. The survey found that less than 50% of projects in organizations with very low maturity in their project management systems met the original budgets or timelines (PMI 2012 Pulse of the Profession).

“What is it that differentiates organizations with higher success rates in effectively managing projects from those with lower success rates?” said Kogon. “Project management today isn’t about managing logistics and hoping the project team is ready to play to win. The skills of ‘informal authority’ are more important than ever before so every team member is not only inspired, but has the knowledge and skills for completing every project in a successful manner. This has to be the number one project management mindset of the 21st century.”

Franklin Covey has been recently approved as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) by PMI. R.E.P.s are organizations that have been approved by PMI to help project managers achieve and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and other PMI professional credentials. Franklin Covey has met PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification, and instructional design as it relates to Franklin Covey’s Project Management Essentials For the Unofficial Project Manager. Franklin Covey joins more than 1,500 R.E.P.s in more than 80 countries.

Franklin Covey’s Project Management Essentials For the Unofficial Project Manager provides employees with the mindsets, skillsets, and toolsets to consistently produce high-quality projects that exceed expectations around time, budget and quality.

After attendance at the work session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand that consistent project success depends on people and processes
  • Implement four foundational behaviors for mastering informal authority which inspire team members to execute with confidence:
    • Demonstrate respect to all stakeholders involved
    • Listen first, to understand the entire scope of the project
    • Clarify expectations of those with whom they work, both directly and indirectly
    • Practice accountability throughout the project by holding regular accountability meetings and providing meaningful feedback

Additionally, attendees will learn to manage projects based upon the process, endorsed by PMI:


  • Identify a project’s stakeholders
  • Establish clear and measurable project outcomes
  • Create a well-defined project scope statement


  • Identify, assess, and manage project risks
  • Create a realistic and well-defined project schedule


  • Hold team members accountable to project plans
  • Conduct consistent team-accountability sessions

Monitor and Control:

  • Create a clear communication plan around their project that includes regular project status reports and project changes


  • Reward and recognize the contributions of team members
  • Formally close projects by documenting lessons learned

Franklin Covey’s Project Management Essentials For the Unofficial Project Manager may be delivered online via a virtual classroom or in a traditional classroom setting.
