Project Execution & Project Kickoff

Project Execution and Project Kickoff Training & Consulting

“The project kickoff and project execution training was excellent. LSA’s Project Management facilitator is one of the best I have ever worked with. His efforts and work in teaching complex and intensive Project Management principles across all levels and backgrounds within our organization have been of the highest value.”
Leslie Guzman | Learning and Development | Roche LLC

We believe that successful projects should be the norm – not the exception.

Two keys of improving project performance are kicking off a project correctly using project kickoff training best practices and running the project well based upon project execution training best practices.  LSA Global’s project management training program has a proven track record of helping leading organizations kickoff and deliver successful projects of all shapes and sizes.

Project Kickoff Training:

We utilize the following key project kickoff training best practice to ensure that your projects start off on the right foot:

  1. Our proven Best Practices 27 point Project Assessment and Diagnostic Tool
  2. A proven and structured project launch process.
  3. Expert, real-time project management coaching from experienced and PMP certified project managers.

Together, we’ll assist your team in clearly defining the project’s goals, constraints, and key internal and external stakeholders while building accurate project schedules, project estimates, project risk plans, and the key project leadership ingredients for project success.

Project Execution Training:

Proper project execution includes defining the project correctly, having a sound project plan, and that onsite, remote and virtual teams employ sound communication practices and work together effectively under challenging (and frequently changing)  cost, time, quality and resource parameters.

As a means of improving project management skills, LSA uses a combination of proven project management solutions that focus on both the art of project management and the science of project management to ensure that your project teams meet or exceed expectations.  Please select from one of the following links to learn more.

As we continue to grow and our projects are increasing significantly in complexity, it is imperative that we incorporate risk management best practices deeper into our Delivery and Project Management methodologies to continue to increase productivity, efficiency, and client satisfaction. I am really happy with the results and would recommend LSA to anyone looking to take project risk management to the next level.

We hired LSA to design and deliver a Project Post Mortem for sixty five key people on a mission critical project with a very tight turnaround. LSA’s ability to identify the key trends, leverage points, and next steps was remarkable. They really got to the heart of the issues in a constructive and unbiased manner that exceeded our expectations. It was not an easy task with so many skeptical people with different agendas, styles, experience, and perspectives.

ServiceSource has relied on LSA Global’s expertise for a variety of core initiatives, from strategy design and implementation, to sales skills, to sales coaching. We recently engaged LSA Global to create a competency matrix for our inside sales team that will serve as our roadmap for employee on-boarding, development, succession planning and retention.

The project management training program was really great. It was extremely helpful to me as a manager to be strategic during a time of explosive growth and change. It was fully customized to our industry and our needs, everyone came out of it with a solid direction of next steps, and the satisfaction scores were wonderful. It could not have gone any better.

We recently designed and implemented two high value Project Management Workshops with LSA. The goal was to improve the fundamental project management skills for less experienced project managers and team members and to prepare our experienced project managers to become PMP certified. The programs were very well received and additional sessions have been requested. Both facilitators were excellent, building strong rapport with our scientists and taking time to encourage & answer questions. Based upon the results and the feedback around the company, the next workshops are already full. I highly recommend LSA to any company looking to take their project management skills to the next level.
