About the course

Project Management is becoming more and more important for all kinds of organizations. With more and more organizations shifting to “mission mode” operations, the skills for completing these tasks within specified time and cost limits are on the rise. The non-repetitive, irreversible nature of these activities and huge capital investment makes the knowledge of scientific and advanced skills mandatory for proper management of projects. The number of tasks and their inter-relationship is very complex even in the case of small projects and use of computer software is becoming essential for effective completion of projects. Many of projects have failed not due to lack of technical expertise but due to limited knowledge of project management by the team leaders and managers. This five – day course is designed to impart necessary skills in managing large projects in different domains like construction, infrastructure, power plants, irrigation etc. The various phases of project development cycle are dealt in detail with an in depth discussion on project formulation, design, implementation, tracking, monitoring, control and closure. The course is designed in line with the Project Management Body of Knowledge of Project Management Institute (PMI).
