Event Details

Please note that this workshop focuses on research based scenarios and is only available to those in Research roles. 


This course builds on Project management – Intermediate and introduces techniques for dealing with complex and ill-defined projects.

  • Be aware of phased project delivery, distinguishing needs and wants and avoiding “gold plating”
  • Understand establishing a project office and defining function and responsibility
  • Learn effective work allocation including scheduling multiple tasks and Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints
  • Understand different project types and alternative project management methodologies
  • Learn to employ Earned Value Analysis (EVA), computing CV, SV, CPI, SVI, and predicting likely outcomes
  • Appreciate ethics and professionalism in projects and the need to comply with rigorous standards of behaviour

Would you like to become a Certified Associate in Project Management?

Attending all project management workshops we offer allows you become a Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM). To be able to take the exam to achieve this qualification you must attend all four workshops (Introduction, Intermediate and Advanced) – although you may have attended one or more in previous years. And there is also a one-day session to prepare you for taking the qualification.

You will then be responsible for signing up to the exam and paying for this yourself. The exam cost is circa £230 ($300). There are two ways to take the exam: In a test centre (the nearest is on Kingsmead Square in Bath) or online.

Taking the exam is not mandatory. You are very welcome to attend the project management workshops without taking the qualification.
