Project Management for Tribes and
Tribal Organizations

Managing projects can be overwhelming, but whether you're charged with simple or complex projects, adhering to a common set of principles can increase your chances of success. Many variables are involved in ensuring that a project runs smoothly — from planning to resource allocation to effective communication. This class will guide you through every phase of the project management life cycle — renewing your energy for current tasks and ensuring you're ready to tackle your next challenge.

As an employee or officer of a tribe or tribal organization, you may face projects such as establishing an employee evaluation program, implementing a new e-mail system or renovating a child care center. Our experienced instructor will present proven methods and techniques that you can apply back on the job. Don't miss this opportunity to improve your ability to organize and schedule a project, set expectations and motivate team members, develop contingency plans and resolve conflicts — all of the key ingredients leading to an outcome that will satisfy you and benefit your tribe.

For students specifically interested in Construction Project Management, we recommend taking Falmouth Institute’s Planning and Managing Construction Projects in Indian Country class.
