Content

This Project Management Fundamentals workshop helps participants understand the significance of project management disciplines required to increase the likelihood of success while reducing risks. This workshop not only covers best practice theory and principles but also provides hands-on activities to demonstrate how they can be applied on projects or indeed day-to-day activities.

The topics covered during the course include:

• defining project versus operational work

• scoping out a project

• time management principles

• risk management techniques

• communication tools

Key scaleable tools and techniques are examined in light of how they can be applied in large, complex projects but also how they can be effectively implemented in small, simple initiatives.

Course Materials

A training manual including course activities and hand-outs is provided during the course. Complementary tools and templates for use on projects will be sent after completion of the workshop.
