Learn how to analyse, draw up a project plan, manage and execute projects of any kind and size, in any industry. The Managing Projects programme provides the mandatory tools needed to assess and determine situations which warrant a project management approach. Gain an invaluable understanding of how to respond to the needs of a modern business environment in a practical, guided way, all within the context of strategic business management.

  • Develop the budget of a project from the various types of costs as they relate to the activity, the project and the corporate context
  • Monitor the actual cost and schedule progress of a project in comparison to the planned cost and progress
