Introduction to Project Management - Watford

This programme is designed for owners, managers and employees who require a degree of understanding of project management beyond a superficial level without the expense of undertaking a longer course.

This short course will help those new to project management to lead and/or contribute to projects more effectively.

Projects are how organisations make things happen. Projects deliver changes that improve services to customers, increase operational effectiveness and process change. Staff in all types of roles participate in projects, so what exactly is project management?

The objectives of this short course are to give you an overview of project management and take you through the cycle of a project, from early conception and defining the scope through to the evaluation and lessons learned.

You will focus on the harder skills required in project management rather than the softer skills of influencing people or communication.

You are taken through the stages of a project and what is required at each stage:
- Defining a project
- Creating the business case
- Planning the project
- Implementation and control
- Completion

You will also be introduced to important performance factors including scope, risk and quality management and the importance of capturing lessons for action on future projects.
