Project Management: Online and Workshop
Prerequisites


Description


Managing and leading projects is a key skill, and yet it is often poorly understood and actioned; leading to projects that overrun, overspend or overwork the delivery teams.

This blended programme comprises an online module and a face to face workshop. Your booking for the face to face workshop will not be approved until you have completed the online module.

The online module will provide you with a complete toolkit of project management skills (distilled from a number of sound project management “methodologies”) and an overview of various project planning techniques. It has been developed to help you focus on a project you are actively involved in (or one that is about to commence). You will apply a number of tools to real life situations and leave with a clear understanding of the major management issues and the basis of a clear and workable project plan.

The face to face workshop provides an opportunity to build on the learning from the online module. Working with others you will identify options and strategies to help move your project forward and consider solutions to problems you may have encountered.

Instructions regarding how to access the online module will be given in your provisional booking confirmation email. Your booking for the face to face workshop will be confirmed once you have completed the online module.

If you would prefer to complete just the online module without attending a face to face workshop, please visit the booking page for the online module only.
