Overview

Get your projects in on time, and within budget, by proper planning and then tight control. Discover that planning is quick, easy and worth doing. Become confident in using PERT charts, Gantt charts, cost monitoring etc. This course covers all the main techniques in a clear and structured way. The objective of the course is to show that almost everything you do in the workplace is a project, and that projects are worth managing properly. The best practice techniques that we cover are all related to practical examples so that their value can be clearly seen.

The one day course - covers all of the basics that you need to know in order to plan and run a successful project, and to manage project managers

 The two day course - also includes deeper information on forecasting costs, planning resources for multiple projects at the same time, and we work on some real projects to generate real project plans on the day - its great to reinforce the learning immediately and to see that the techniques really do work, and also we can help  and correct any misunderstandings or omissions that have happened during Day 1.
