eLearning Project Tip 23-6: Be The Project Lead, Not a Training Developer Wanna Be!
How do you control costs, deliver your first successful eLearning project, and still earn the red cape of newbie eLearning superhero?
Just because you can use PowerPoint and take iPhone videos does NOT make you a Training Professional. Can you successfully deliver an eLearning project if you DO NOT have a training background? YES. BUT YOU NEED HELP!
What is your primary role? Serve as the Project Manager. No, you don’t need to be a “real certified project manager”. But you have been entrusted by your company to serve as the eLearning project lead, to get the job done. Your role is to focus on managing the company assets (people, technology, products) and ensure critical project tasks are completed for On-Time and On-Budget launch.
BIG HINT: Consider enrolling in a project management coaching program that provides a Quick Start (1-day) and complete mentoring throughout your project lifecycle, which should take no more than 90 days to complete. And you will need to hire an eLearning expert, known as a Project Content Lead (PCL) who manages all content related tasks including supervising the production team. Tag-teaming means that you can get the eLearning project done right while keeping up on your REAL JOB. Together with the PCL, you can easily launch your complex eLearning project ON-time and ON-budget.
