Course Overview

This workshop focuses on the technical aspects of project management. We look at the role of the project manager in the project planning process, discuss the issues of project control and the need for robust and accurate information at key stages.

This highly practical one day course provides a good introduction to some of the techniques such as critical path analysis, network analysis and risk assessment as well as how to design control systems and monitoring progress. We also look at the identification of project tasks and how they inter-relate to each other, as well as how to create robust assessments of the time and resources required at each stage. The use of case studies and practical exercises throughout the day helps to focus on important issues and highlight learning points.

Whilst the course is designed to provide a solid introduction to the basics of project management, delegates will also be given a brief introduction to the main concepts and project stages in PRINCE 2 (Projects in controlled environments), the de-facto standard required by many major projects in the public and private sector.
