Most organisations run projects – but under 40% of those projects are delivered on time, on budget and achieve their objectives.
A project has a much higher chance of success if the strategy is clear and everyone involved knows the principles of running a project. All members of the team need clarity on their roles and what is needed from others to ensure plans are effective. This training will give you the skills to ensure you plan all of this.
This one day course will lead you through the essentials of project management, why it is needed and what makes a project run well. The focus will be on techniques and actions needed to deliver high quality projects on time and budget. Delegates will leave the day with a comprehensive overview of project management and practical skills and templates to help your organisation accomplish success.
What will delegates learn?
- Differences between a project and business as usual
- Benefits of project management
- Project lifecycle and features of a successful project
- Roles within a project and characteristics of effective project teams
- Identifying and engaging stakeholders
- Communication for results
- Outlining project scope and producing a plan
- Scheduling, monitoring and reporting
- Risk and issue management – and what to do when things go wrong
- Managing changes
- How to successfully conclude a project.
