An introduction to the project-management process and the tools used to plan and track progress.
This course is intended to be immediately applicable to academic/research projects as well as commercial projects. We will cover the theory and principles of project management within the context of the Project Management Institute.
During this one-day course, you will:
- Learn the basics of the project planning process and receive a set of checklists and guidelines that you can use immediately on any project
- Appreciate the fundamental principles of a well-led and well directed project, such as identifying and scheduling tasks, activities, milestones and understanding and managing stakeholders
- Be aware of the critical factors that will influence whether a project will be successful or not, including identifying and managing risk
- Use practical, group-based exercises to reinforce and enhance the skills learned
- Create work breakdown structures, network diagrams, critical path analysis, Gantt charts and other techniques that ensure robust project control
This is the first of three workshops preparing you to become a Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM). If you wish to achieve this qualification you must attend all three workshops (Introduction, Intermediate and Advanced) – although you may have attended one or more in previous years. In addition, there is also a mandatory one-day session to prepare you for taking the qualification.
