About the Programme

Many organisations do not employ full-time Project Managers and it is common to pull together a project team to address a specific need. While most people do not have formal skills in a project methodology, taking a role in a project team can be an excellent learning opportunity and can improve a person's career profile. Whether you are a senior manager or someone who has never been on a project, you will learn the tools and techniques that help you to direct a project.

Organisations that are progressing down the path of becoming project based often find they need to co-ordinate their efforts across divisions or departments in order to achieve the real business benefits of effective project management. This course provides a platform to discuss the organisation’s project methodology as well as exchange ideas and brainstorm on best practice. The course is designed to ensure the three levels of the organisation - company executives or senior functional managers, project or programme managers, and project support personnel are able to benefit from a consistent approach to Project Management by revisiting the basics.

This four days intensive course provides delegates with a broad introduction to the concepts of project management. The course will clarify what constitutes a project and identify the core principles of project management. It is a highly participative course, with delegates undertaking group-based working on a case study to generate information about their current project
