No matter who you are or what you do, whether at work or in the community, you are more than likely to be involved in managing projects at some stage. Project management is chiefly associated with planning and managing change in an organisation, but a project can also be something unrelated to business – even a domestic situation, such as moving house, or planning a family event. Any task that requires some preparation to achieve a successful outcome, will probably be done better by using a few project management tools and techniques somewhere in the process. Project management methods can help in the planning and managing of all sorts of tasks, especially complex activities.

This intensive 1 day Project Management course aims to allow delegates to understand how to maximise their skills to project manage both small and large projects and learn techniques to analyse, set objectives, implement the project and monitor and control the outcomes.
