INTRODUCTION TO PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Business Management

Introduction

Projects and Project Management works involve a team of people contributing their diverse individual expertise toward achieving a common objective or goal. Successfully managing a project requires effective planning and adherence to the industry’s best practices in every step of the process. By understanding the fundamentals of project management, you will be better prepared to initiate a project in your organisation and position it for success.

This two-day program is designed with the objective of presenting an introductory level knowledge of project management practices to non-project specialists to enable the learning of project management practices without the overwhelming jargons of a formal project management framework. The workshop focuses on managing the dynamics of projects and will equip participants with the hands-on skills and experience to manage projects successfully.

Objectives

At the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Identify the dynamics of managing project
  • Manage expectations and developing strategies for influencing stakeholders
  • Use practical tools for managing projects
  • Manage the dynamics of human relations of project teams

Duration

2 days | 9am – 5pm | 14 hours
