About the course
Delays, cost overruns, or quality problems can wreck your project. Learn how to keep it on track with this 5-day intensive project management programme. You know you are competent in project management, however, you are often challenged by the need to apply project management disciplines in more depth and in a more controlled, monitored and evaluated context. You know you need to become proficient in how you identify, quantify, plan for and manage project risks and requirements, and in how you monitor, control and report on the team’s progress against the project charter. In fact, you need to take up the management role more formally within project teams and with stakeholders to ensure you deliver to schedule, scope, cost and quality.
Aligned with PMI’s PMBOK®, this programme helps you master the entire project management process. You’ll earn 35 professional development units (PDUs) pre-approved by PMI, and you’ll gain skills and in-depth knowledge that prepare you for the next level: the Project Management Professional certification.
