Practical Project Management (2 Days)
16th July 2019 @ 9:15 am - 4:00 pm£399 Non-Academy Price £279 Academy Price
July 16th & 23rd
Who should attend: New and/or inexperienced project managers in all sectors. This course is suitable for anyone new to project management who wants an effective introduction to its basic principles.
Many companies are realizing that the traditional project management principles are no longer applicable in today’s extremely dynamic and demanding environment.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, participants 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.
Participants 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:
- Project Life Cycle
- Stakeholder Analysis, Management and Communication
- Project Resources
- Planning Tools
- Work Breakdown Structures, Flowcharts, PERT/Critical Path Analysis, Gantt Charts and Product Based Planning
- Risk Management
- Business Case
- Cost-Benefit Analysis
- Key roles within a project management team
- Project Team Roles
- Monitoring projects
- Controlling projects
- Evaluating projects
