This highly intensive 5-day course combines theory and practice of key skills in a programme to develop and improve performance in a Project Management team. Personnel working in the oil and gas industry will in many cases be called upon to construct a Project Execution Plan and make a bid for funds to conduct a project. This course provides delegates with the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve this by following the key stages of a simulated large-scale project.

The workshop will include more detailed sessions on individual VIPs – depending on the solution to the case study that is developed by the teams. The stage gates will use simplified versions of Decision Support Packages to assist teams’ purpose in taking and winning decisions in the simulation of the Capital Value Process. In addition, the course format enables them to consider and solve the strategic issues relevant to projects and their performance for organisations.

What you will learn?

How you will learn

The principles are reviewed and reinforced through a combination of interactive exercises linked to the development of a major case study. Delegates apply what they learn in this realistic preparation of a project execution plan. At the end of the course, delegates are required to present their project execution plan simulating the project team asking for funds to develop the project.


The course is five days.
