Full course description
Topic: Project Management
Date: Thursday, Feb 24, 2022
They say that “failing to plan is the same as planning to fail”. By focusing on developing sound project management skills and processes, projects are more realistically budgeted for and resourced, risks are managed and mitigated, and projects are far more likely to be executed on time without severe consequences to people.
This is a project management workshop with a difference. As opposed to a day of dry theory, participants are exposed to a live case study to which they apply tools and techniques. Project execution becomes evident in a compelling way.
At the end of this session, participants can expect:
- Improved project execution
- More realistic project plans and budgets
- Improved communication with stakeholders
- Better management and mitigation of risks
- Better incorporation of lessons learned into future projects
