Novel curriculum equips non-tech employees with time-saving secrets from the IT world.
(1888PressRelease) June 08, 2011 - Layoffs may have slowed, but in many organizations, the remaining employees are shouldering much heavier workloads than before the recession. This increased "grind" has taken a toll on employee engagement. Concerned employers, searching for ways to alleviate the load, are eyeing a new curriculum from Systemation, a Denver-based performance improvement firm. The title: Got Projects?
Here's the premise: Most businesspeople manage projects of one sort or another. But folks in non-technical fields-say, HR or marketing-mostly likely have never received formal project training.
As a result, they use seat-of-the-pants, self-designed methods for completing projects. "What if we equipped them with some time-saving and efficiency-boosting tools and techniques from the IT world?" wondered Ben Snyder, Systemation's CEO. "Could we free up 10 percent to 25 percent of a typical project lead's time?"
That's the goal of "Got Projects?" By adjusting time-tested IT tools and processes for non-technical projects, Systemation aims to improve project performance, boost career satisfaction and help employees regain a healthy work-life balance.
