Project Management Essentials for Food Safety Professionals: Improve Collaboration, Meet Deadlines and Reduce Work

Project Management is the discipline to initiate, plan, execute, control, and closeout work of a team in order to achieve a specific goal. Today, many resources are available through books, blogs, templates, and seminars that provide insight into this meticulous, yet necessary practice. Though information wealth is abundant, many of these solutions do not provide direction specific to the food industry, nor food safety initiatives.

Have you ever been asked to prepare for an inspection or certification, implement a new product line, or create a Food Safety Manual? The many needs of a food facility are without limitation, and often we are given a project on top of an already demanding work schedule. Learning ways to effectively manage a project can take weeks or months, which we simply do not have time or resources to devote.

Valerie will discuss specific strategies to support your current program architecture and immediately streamline your current projects. By providing a pertinent industry-related scenario, you’ll be provided with the ability to become active participants in creating a winning project management strategy. You’ll be able to INSTANTLY apply this example to benefit the current state of your organization.
