Introduction to Project Management Course

This Introduction to project management course gives you a simple, step-by-step approach to ensuring any project you have responsibility for is as successful. It will also help you to plan it well to the point that it is as stress-free as possible.

Introduction to project management course almost always comprises doing something that has not been done before. Because of that, it carries an inherent ’risk’ of not succeeding.

During this course, you will learn essential project management training skills required to ensure you can reduce the risk of failure. You will leave having the confidence to multi-task, co-ordinate and delegate in order to get the project completed successfully. This leads to the project being completed on time and with the resources allocated to you.

Where possible, delegates are required to bring in details of a project they are either planning, currently working on. If you haven’t got a project you are currently working on or planning, then please bring in one that you have been involved with in the past.

It only has to be a short one page summary describing the project. What your involvement was? as well as if you had any issues or encountered any problems.

This project management course is limited to a maximum of 12 delegates. This ensures that our experienced trainer has the time to assist you with any personal complex points that may arise during the day.

A project is essentially a task that requires inputs from several contributors, has clear objectives, specified start and finish dates, and generally some limited resource with which to accomplish this. This project management course will teach you the project management skills necessary to juggle all of the above and still keep a calm head.  It will help any organisation create a straight forward system to successfully manage small to medium sized projects and most of all it demystifies the whole topic.
