The Project Committee TOOLKIT

Sometimes committee service is a challenge. That's when it's time to fast track.

About the Toolkit

Learn to Form, Operate and Lead Successful Project Committees

The Project Committee Toolkit combines "how-to" learning with "take action" tools, teaching you how to form and operate more productive committees using the "committee concept" process. Committees are one of the most common and effective means of organizing staff, co-workers, colleagues and customers to deliberate and make decisions. But too often, committees can become overly bureaucratic, too contentious, and allowed to drift from the mission. The committee concept process provides a step-by-step road-map to help you avoid these pitfalls and ensure that resulting committees are properly formed, managed and staffed.

What can you expect to learn....?

  • How to lead more productive committees using the 'committee concept' process.
  • How to define the committee mission in clear, actionable terms.
  • How to form a working committee structure and fill positions according to role, interest and influence.
  • How to develop and implement a working committee Code of Conduct.
  • How to plan and manage effective committee meetings.
  • How to evaluate committee results and committee member performance.
