"Plans are worthless. Planning is essential"
Who should attend
All Managers and staff delegated or assigned to undertake a substantial project within budget and on time.
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.
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.
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
Influencing and delegating
Winning commitment during a presentation
