Project Management for EAs and Administrators
Duration: 1 Day
Executive Assistants and Administrators often play key communications roles in the gaps between project teams, sponsors and their organisation.
They often report to multiple managers and have to juggle daily responsibilities with special projects. All of this demands a large investment of time and requires you to stretch your skills–to coordinate the work of people, identify project requirements, gather resources and set project goals.
