Event Details

This course builds on Project management – An introduction to offer a more in-depth and hands-on experience. It is designed to help you integrate previous project-management training and techniques.

We will use applied learning to further embed project management skills and knowledge with reference to the Project Management Institute.

During this one-day course, you will:

  • Follow a case study from initial conception through to full project initiation and implementation using practical, group-based exercises to apply learning to ‘real world’ situations and requests
  • Practice more advanced work breakdown structures, network diagrams, critical path and PERT analysis, Gantt charts and other techniques that ensure robust project control
  • Demonstrate planning a project from initiation to completion
  • Manage and adapt the plan to meet challenging requests in terms of scope creep, resource change, change requests, and cost/budget challenges
  • Understand the impact of human “utility” on project planning and management
  • Learn techniques to identify risks, quantitatively and qualitatively assess probability and impact and use a 5-point assessment matrix to categorise risk and then undertake a proactive, detailed risk analysis of the case study by following a rigorous and robust risk management process
  • Be able to calculate and justify EMV and project contingency

This is the second 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.
