This is the second presentation r in a series of six 75 minute instructor-led modules to give Localisation professionals an overview of a simple effective process for managing projects successfully. The series is designed for people whose job it is to manage localisation projects so that schedule, quality and cost goals are achieved. The focus is on simple messages and techniques so that participants can improve their project management performance as soon as they return to the workplace.

What is it about?
The content of the first module is outlined below. The instructor will present each module in 45 – 60 minutes, illustrating the points with examples from his experience.

Module 2. Process and Tools

This module deals with the use of tools, and the importance of understanding the process by which the project will be carried out. We will discuss how participants currently manage tools and processes, and we will briefly look at some tools and processes used today. However, this is not a technical discussion about tools. It is a guide to the best way to incorporate tools and processes in successful projects. The key topics covered are:

• What process does your company use?
• What tools can you use?
• What tools “should” you use?
• Examples of typical tools used, advantages and issues.
• Lessons Learned*

What will I get out of it?

Participants will get an outline of a simple effective framework to help them manage projects more successfully.

What’s included?

• Participants will have free unlimited access to the session video recording.

I know this is one of six modules of a complete course, but I expected to find more detailed information about localisation process. Workflows displayed on some slides were not sharp (I think it was not problem w/my computer because I attended other course at the same day and all worked fine).

I like the info and it is helpful to begin to build a base when concerned with the terminology and lingo of the industry.
