Intake: On Demand

Study Mode: Part Time

Duration: 2 Days

 

Overview

When processes and systems for them have been established, organisations still find areas where controls and know-how is lacking, especially for some activities for a specific period of time, called projects. Because of their short-term nature projects are not controlled and monitored effectively, often leading to over-runs and losses.

Project Management is a skill that has to be learned. Many people get involved in managing projects without the proper guidance and training, eventually learning from unsuccessful projects. There are many facets to being a successful project manager and the really good project managers are highly sought after.

A project starts from an idea in an organisation and slowly evolves into an opportunity before it blooms into a project. Learning therefore has to go through strategic planning, project feasibility study and the Project Management Life Cycle. We call this process.

This course is intended to train personnel involved in such projects to assess, capture and control them and make the project progress transparent, effective and successful.
