About the course

Learn how to streamline and manage projects more efficiently and effectively in everyday business activities.

Many professionals, in some way or another are tasked to complete projects in their daily work environments. Yet, many do not have the necessary formal training and skill-set to streamline and manage their projects in a more structured and timeous manner.

By definition, project management is the discipline and process of managing the end-to-end activities within a project life-cycle. This includes activities such as planning, monitoring and controlling, budgeting, resource managing as well as maintaining the morale of the project team. To add to the complexity, all these activities are simultaneously carried out to achieve the project objectives on time and to the specified cost, quality and performance, in line with the strategic intent of the organisation.

In addition, success is not only measured by delivery and closure of the project, but by the manner in which it was executed and whether it was line with the original expectations and business case.

This 2 day programme will provide you with the tools and techniques needed to successfully lead, manage, execute and evaluate projects in your day-to-day operations.
