Project Management Essential

May 15, 2023 - May 16, 2023

As a project manager you need to handle many things at once; people, stakeholders, resources, budget, assistants, technical issues. In addition, knowing how other teams are doing is essential so you don’t fall behind. It is a juggling activity and as such requires a well-practiced skill. Fortunately, there are many principles that can be used for a successful head start. This practical course will help you to learn the skills of a successful project manager quickly and efficiently.

Many companies are realizing that the traditional project management principles are no longer applicable in today’s extremely dynamic and demanding environment. A fixed approach of planning is no longer a good method since it is very difficult to anticipate everything in advance and respond to it in the plan. Instead, more agile planning methods are required to accommodate for changing markets, technology and resources over the course of a typical project.

As a result, new project managers must be systematically thought on best practices and established management techniques. In this course, you will understand the role of project manager as a broker of information. The emphasis here is on the day-to-day running of a project as opposed to leading a team using emotional skills.

You will learn how to manage time, resources, cost, risk and quality using a variety of practical hands-on exercises. This course includes the following topics:
