Project Management (Full Day)

Duration: 1 days
Target population: All staff members
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
Project management is the application of appropriate tools and techniques to help project managers and their teams achieve successful delivery on desired end results.

Course objectives
This course provides:
* a framework for managing projects that is proven, adaptable, and consistent with the practice standard (“Project Management Institute Book of Knowledge”)
* insight into why projects succeed or fail, and how to anticipate and deal with barriers and roadblocks
* knowledge of project management fundamentals and vocabulary. (The course is a prerequisite for a ‘level 2’ course on applying processes and planning tools to ongoing projects.)
* understanding of the potential role of planning tools on certain types of projects.

The course will be of most value to those working with (or leading) project teams.

Learning outcomes
By the end of the course participants will be able to:
* position their projects and deadlines within a simple “5-step” framework
* map out a plan to address issues and move the project forward or get it back on track
* use and adapt templates provided to organise and manage a project
* deal with situations and engage stakeholders in supporting the project
