Project Management (A practical introduction) - 1/2 day

 

Purpose of course: To equip you with the knowledge, skills and techniques to plan and deliver a small project on time, to the required quality standard and to budget. 

 

This very practical course uses the example of planning a team building day for a client, enabling delegates to learn and experience every step of a 'real life' project management activity. Skills and knowledge then transfer with ease back into the workplace.

 

Target audience: For those who are new to managing projects. 

 

Learning Outcomes:

 

At the end of the workshop you will have experience of:

 

  • questioning the client to ensure you fully understand the requirements and constraints of the project.
  • completing a Project Initiation Document (PID - for client agreement) 
  • identifying and engaging appropriately with key stakeholders 
  • identifying and minimising potential issues/risks 
  • identifying and allocating key activities and resources 
  • finding the  'critial path'
  • creating a project plan to monitoring progress (using a Gantt chart)
  • reporting on progress

 

Led by: Bridget Wilkinson, FCIPD, SFHEA
