As project management becomes more pervasive in all aspects of life, this course makes this all-important discipline broadly accessible to delegates who need to understand and have practical experience of project management without requiring professional accreditation.
Through a very practical workshop, delegates leave feeling confident in their ability to manage projects as well as appreciating some of the broader change management and stakeholder engagement issues.
During the workshop, the delegates will be introduced to some fundamentals of project management, which is based on the best management practice method of PRINCE2®, as well as the importance of having the right governance and organisation structures in place for effective decision making.
As well as starting from firm foundations, the workshop focuses on the need for a business case and well-structured plans but also recognises that things don’t always go according to those plans. The workshop helps by introducing delegates to the world of Risk & Issue management as well as change control since they are key factors to consider when trying to keep the project on track.
Finally, deriving the benefit from a project is only as good as the engagement with the business in utilising the deliverables from the project. This is why the workshop touches on stakeholder engagement and the principles of change management.
