Effective project management (PM) is about creating a balance between task, team and individual. In this course, we will complete a project initiation document, which will introduce you to the PM language and concepts. We will practice core project management tools, including SWOT analysis and work breakdown schedules and discuss stakeholder communication and people management skills.
It is a practical rather than theoretical course and you will be encouraged to apply the skills and knowledge developed.
The course is delivered by a professional skills trainer and project manager who continues to deliver projects in both a commercial and academic setting.
- Develop your organisational skills
