Description

ABOUT THE COURSE

This intensive project management training course offers comprehensive guidance for managing any type of project, small or complex, providing delegates with a solid foundation of project management, from the very start to the successful conclusion of a project.

This training course explores the very foundations of how projects are different from the operational world, but an absolute necessity when it comes to changing the operational world. You will discover how the very best practice management techniques are used to take a project through a project lifecycle, from Inception, through Definition, Execution, Monitoring, and Control to Closure.

Interacting with the project lifecycle is described as the hard skills of project management e.g. scope management, schedule management, resource management, cost management; along with the soft skills necessary to deliver a project e.g. team leadership, stakeholder management, project communications, conflict management.

As Project Management is considered a vital organisational competency, throughout the course, the focus will be on how the role of the Project Manager interacts with the other key roles e.g. Project Sponsor, Project Team, Steering Group, Project Management Office, who are all responsible for aspects of a project management capability in an organisation.
