Franklin Covey Co. Announces 50-City Tour: Project Management Essentials For The Unofficial Project Manager - Offers Complimentary Overviews For Leaders And Managers

Franklin Covey Co. (NYSE:FC), a global performance improvement company, announced today it is offering a 50-city North American tour featuring three-hour, complimentary overviews of Project Management Essentials For the Unofficial Project Manager , its newest productivity offering.

The overviews are designed for leaders and managers who wish to increase employee project manager skills within organizations. The new work session was created for employees in the workplace who manage projects of any kind, especially those who may not have “project manager” as an official job title.

“As longer work hours, high-stress environments and seemingly endless project and workload demands become more of a rule than an exception in the workplace, the need to complete projects smarter and on budget is more important than ever,” said Kory Kogon, Productivity Practice Leader, Franklin Covey Co. “And, with more employees serving as ‘unofficial project managers,’ without the formal training, the probability of project failure increases significantly. Consider the impact that one failed project can have on a department, let alone several. Every leader or manager should be asking themselves how much project failure is costing their department and what can be done to insure greater project success.”

Leaders and managers who are evaluating the relevance of project management solutions in their organization who attend Franklin Covey’s complimentary overviews will have an opportunity to see how Project Management Essentials For the Unofficial Project Manager provides employees the mindsets, skillsets, and toolsets to consistently produce projects that exceed expectations around time, budget and quality.

The live events in the 50 cities begin January 10, 2013 through February 12, 2013. To register to attend a live event, please visit www.franklincovey.com/nationaltour .
