MGTSK - Skill Development module

Project Management (For Management & Excluded)

Duration: 1 days
Target population: All staff members in management and excluded positions
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
The course is designed to provide students with:

• a generic “5-step” framework for managing projects that is consistent with the worldwide “Project Management Institute Book of Knowledge”, and can be applied on any project

• the ability to “read” project environments, detecting and diagnosing barriers and roadblocks, and prepare strategies for moving their projects forward

• the skills and methods that they can apply at their workplaces immediately

• a broad context of the subject and potential avenues for continued learning

The course includes a combination of lectures, demonstrations, and group work using real life case examples. Class size is limited to ensure a high level of interactivity.


By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

• position projects and deadlines within a common “5-step” framework

• quickly map out an action plan for moving a project forward, or getting a project back on track

• use and adapt key templates and processes supporting the 5-step framework

• understand the role and challenges of the “project manager” function

• understand how a project management tool (ex MS Project) may help him/her fulfill this role
