Build a solid foundation of project management knowledge, techniques and tools.
You have been assigned to manage a project or you are participating in a project as a team member. You probably have heard or read a lot on project management. However, how do you structure the project, how do you plan it effectively and how do you take control over its implementation?
How able are you to establish and explain the scope, schedule, cost and quality of your projects? How do you measure progress and success against those factors?
As the business world grows more competitive, organizations find it necessary to take on an increasing number of projects. Unfortunately, these same organizations often don’t have skilled project managers to handle the work. In this programme, you will learn and practice the critical tools and techniques that have been proven necessary for project management success. In lectures, discussions and exercises, you’ll cover the essential aspect of managing projects.
While aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) framework, this programme is specifically designed to focus on the practical application of concepts. You’ll return to work with the knowledge and tools you need to get your projects started right and completed successfully.
Who should attend?
Individuals who are new to project management, “accidental” project managers (i.e. professionals for whom project management is secondary to their jobs), business analysts, subject-matter experts from any field who contribute to projects, managers responsible for projects and experienced project managers looking to review current tools, techniques, and processes.
