Processes, Tools and Techniques that will allow Indigenous communities & organizations to more effectively: Plan, Manage and Implement Land Use & Territorial Land Use projects

Territorial Land and Community Land Use Planning in an Indigenous community is a complex process, comprised of multiple projects that need to be managed in a coordinated way over several years

Additionally, there are many internal organizational barriers ex. lack of understanding cross-functionally, (at both Leadership and Senior Management levels) of TLUP and LUP process/projects, and externally (sporadic funding from DIS, multijurisdictional political, environmental and historical (CP’s) constraints, community buy-in etc) that need to be addressed

To manage such a complex set of deliverables and barriers requires a structured framework and a meticulous approach

Target Audience                                                                                                 

This Workshop is designed for Chief & Council, Senior Management & Administration teams (Territorial Stewardship, Lands, Referrals Officers, Planners, Environmental Coordinators, Economic Development, Consultation) that want to improve their project management skills and manage projects more effectively

Workshop Description

Utilizing client specific TLUP and LUP case projects, this workshop focuses on the important and critical front-end planning phases. It introduces participants to Project Management Planning Essentials regarding topics such as planning strategies for ramping up projects, balancing scope, schedule and cost; balancing & assessing strong/diverse stakeholder needs, performance reporting considerations, aspects of contract/procurement managementand risk management

Compliant with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK), this case-based hands-on session also includes tips & techniques gleaned from over 40 years of project experience. A comprehensive reference manual that includes industry best practices and templates are also provided. Access to TLUP and LUP templates can be accessed via our Community of Practice portal

Instructional Approach

A certified PMP instructor with extensive Indigenous Land Use Project Planning experience facilitates the workshop content. Application of the learning is enhanced and reinforced by hands-on exercises based on TLUP and LUP cases. Participants conduct the exercises in a team-based format, thereby enhancing their team-building knowledge and skills

Learning Objectives

At the end of this workshop, participants will have the confidence and the skills to prepare the most important and critical front end Project Planning tools that articulate, define and organize their TLUP and LUP projects. In addition, they will be able to clearly communicate their project and project needs to others to seek the required approvals, and to control the project during its implementation phase. Participants find that most tools and techniques learned can be applied in their workplace the very next day. Specifically, at the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the differences between projects/programs and operations
