Physicians are increasingly being asked to tackle projects with high stakes deliverables, but don’t always have the proper knowledge to lead them toward successful outcomes. This course has a unique focus on the physician’s role in project management and explores the nuances of traditional, dyad, and triad project leadership models. Throughout this course, you will find new ways to reduce costs, identify risks, increase productivity, and boost your competitive advantage through project management strategies, such as the use of the Triple Constraint. The roles of the project manager, team members, stakeholders, and sponsors will be discussed in detail, along with the importance of ongoing clarity and communication. Whether you are taking on a small project or a large initiative, improving your project management skills can help ensure project tasks are met on time and under budget.

You'll learn to:

  • Describe the roles physicians can and should play in the management of healthcare projects
  • Identify the four phases of a project and explain their impact on project outcomes
  • Explain project team roles and their importance in the project management process
  • Recognize different project types and reasons why some projects are not labeled
  • Utilize the Triple Constraint to evaluate project scope, time, cost and quality outcomes
  • Recognize the importance of clarity and communication when working with stakeholders
  • Develop strategies to improve dyad and triad project leadership outcomes
