These activities are actually “projects.” Because management doesn’t recognize these assignments as projects, few Administrative Professionals receive training or tools to help manage the work efficiently and effectively.

Administrative Professionals can and do plan, execute, and manage projects to get desired results on time and on budget. Learn to avoid the biggest pitfalls for any project manager and adapt widely-used approaches to manage projects successfully. You do not need to be called a project manager to be a successful one.
Rebecca Staton-Reinstein, Ph.D and president of Advantage Leadership, Inc., has been both an accidental, untrained Project Manager and a trained one. She has managed a wide variety of projects and understands the pain of juggling too many tasks, relying on others for information and work with no authority to manage them and struggling to keep too many stakeholders from spoiling the project. She has developed project management programs for her clients around the world. She developed project management programs specifically for administrative professionals for the American Management Association, webinar providers and conferences for administrative professionals.
