Project Management is both a discipline and an art. As a discipline it offers a solid well researched methodology for project success. As an art it requires confidence and skills in managing people and change. This 3-day course is an introduction to project management methodology, tools and techniques that can be applied to projects. Course participants will develop skills and obtain knowledge on how to plan, manage and deliver successful projects in any work environment. Participants will gain an overall understanding of Project Management, the four phases of the project lifecycle, how to use fundamental tools and techniques to manage projects, and how to manage a project from beginning to end while controlling time, scope, cost and quality.
