Product Description

Project Management

Project Management is fast becoming a hot discipline. Downsizing, outsourcing and the accelerating rate of change means that increasingly work is carried out on a one-off project basis.

 

Get a solid understanding of the concepts, tools and techniques of project management with this comprehensive introductory course.

 

Covering the entire project life cycle, the content identifies the dual nature of project management – you must manage both the process and the people.

 

The ability to deliver a project on time and within budget requires much more than just planning skills. The soft skills of leadership and communication are equally important.

 

In short lively segments this course investigates both the hard and soft skills necessary to navigate even the most complex project management issues.

 

Participants learn through compact case histories, real-world examples, hands-on exercises and a broad array of practical experiences that can be immediately applied to their job.

 

Successful project management requires great planning, the ability to get the most from the team and last but by no means least – a determination to succeed. This course shows you how
