‘Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.’

Learn about the art of productive laziness with the lazy project   manager; understanding what is meant by the ‘productive lazy’ approach to   projects (and life) and learn how to apply these lessons ‘to be twice as   productive and still leave the office early’.

The seminar will cover the definition of productive laziness, the science   behind the theory (yes there really is some), and will share some personal   learning experiences that led to the creation of ‘the lazy project manager’.   In addition the audience will be led through the three key project stages,   one of which the ‘lazy’ project manager works very hard in and the second   they should be in the comfortable position of enjoying the ‘comfy chair’ safe   in the knowledge that the project is well under control.

A specific focus will be made on the third area, project closure, which can   be done so much better with very little effort but with a significant value   add for all ‘would be’ lazy project managers.

Who should attend

The workshop is directed at anyone who is directly or indirectly involved in   project based activity, experienced or otherwise, and is a great team   building opportunity:

• Project managers
• Senior project management practitioners
• Project administrators
• PMO staff

All are welcome, only a keen interest in learning more about what an   effective project manager, and project team, can deliver is required.


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Apply the approach of ‘productive laziness’
• Understand how to better manage themselves while managing others on   projects
• Identify ways to apply the concept of working smarter, not harder
• Apply personal efforts where it matters most on a project
• Work with team members in a more productive way
• Plan projects to start the way they want them to start
• Communicate more effectively with the entire project team
