Introduction

Today Administrative Professionals perform many operations once performed by specialists. 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. The work is added to an already full schedule, major decisions have been made elsewhere and you often have no “team” to work with you. 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.
