Project Management

Scheduled course outline – duration 2 days

"Plans are worthless. Planning is essential"

Business Scenario

It isn’t just the effective control of processes that delivers the successful outcome to a project; it is principally the involvement of people and an intelligent marshalling of their contributions that makes all the difference. Good project managers need to be dynamic, responsive and focused in a way that wins their project influence and support from those in a position to make change happen.

Who should attend?

All Managers and staff delegated or assigned to undertake a substantial project within budget and on time.

The purpose:

After identifying and understanding the key characteristics of successful project management, delegates will plan these key skills into their respective project briefs.

The programme includes:

  • The competencies required of a Project Manager
  • The three essential criteria for managing a project
  • The key stages of a typical project
  • Organising the project using charts and analyses
  • Constructing a responsibility matrix
  • Estimating, scheduling and budgeting
  • Conducting effective meetings
  • Introducing change
  • Influencing and delegating
  • Winning commitment during a presentation

The approach:

With group exercises, informal discussions, trainer presentation and video, delegates bring their own experiences and challenges and explore new behaviours to ensure a successful outcome to their project.
