This intensive four-day course gives a comprehensive and detailed insight into the core Project Management elements. A stimulating blend of theory and practice ensures that knowledge is illustrated and reinforced through the practical application of case study exercises. Real world examples are used to illustrate problems that may be faced in the working environment, and delegates are encouraged to draw upon their own experiences to further add to the learning experience. The topics, disciplines and enabling skills are progressively built upon and linked to the development of case studies solved in a team environment to further improve delegates' personal skills.
By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:
- Understand the overall context within which a project is performed.
- Understand structural and systematic aspects of project planning, control & management.
- Be aware of the need for effective scope and change control and the impact on project success.
- Perform analytical techniques of project planning and cost control using manual and computer-based techniques.
- Explain and perform the practical role and general duties of project planning and cost control for the project manager and the Project Management Team.
- Appreciate the role of estimating and how it relates to effective planning and control.
- Understand the contribution of improved project planning and control to the project management performance of a company.
- Commence, or enhance, preparation of portfolio evidence and collection of competence.
- Have a structured personal and professional development plan put in place.
The course is four days and begins at 9:00 AM.
