Overview

A structured and systematic approach to planning and managing a project can make an enormous difference to the effectiveness of the project and to those involved with it.

Project management techniques can be applied to individuals’ everyday activities, to broader team goals, or to a more strategic programme of work.

With careful planning and on-going management, individuals, teams, and organisations as a whole can ensure that they achieve their operational and strategic goals to the desired time, cost and quality in as painless a way as possible. 

This training event draws on established project management techniques to enable you and your team to develop a roadmap and the necessary components for achieving your current goals.

It will also equip you with the essential skills and tools to tackle future operational and strategic projects.
