Who should attend

This Oxfrord Technical Project Management training course is intended for Project Management Professionals and individuals who want to hone their project management skills. So whatever background you have (i.e., Oil & Gas, Engineering, Information Technology or Business), this online training course will cover both fundamental principles and modern tools of project management.

About the course

It is widely recognized that the field of Project Management is vital to the success of businesses especially during times of uncertainty and operational disruption. As projects become more complex and more organisations move to management by projects, there is an increasing demand for competent project managers. Surprisingly, many projects go wrong, and the question is: why do they go wrong? Most of the answer has little to do with project size or degree of complexity but a lot to do with competent project planning and control. The cause of project failures can often be traced back to poor project definition, planning, or control.

Among the three top desired project management skills, technical knowledge rates as a key component that employers require. While leadership is paramount, the success of a project requires making ‘good’ informed decisions based on solid data. Yet, few managers have had formal training in decision-making and project control. This Oxford Technical Project Management training course provides you with the training you need to estimate, plan and control your project and show you how to translate data into action that ultimately saves the project.

  • Knowledge of Project Economic Evaluation
