Project Management

Overview (1 day session)

Successful organisations are increasingly using projects to deliver internal assignments as well as improved services and contracts to clients. Often, these projects are used to develop staff’s knowledge and experience, as well as to deliver a commercial benefit. For this to work satisfactorily, the project leader must be able to use project planning tools and co-ordinate different activities, even when he/she has no direct reports or previous experience.

Who should attend?

People selected to undertake any form of project, from organising an away day to multi-million investments.
