Project Management

Project Management Fundamentals

Course Overview

Well-managed projects reap undoubted benefits and in today's business environment a solid project management approach is often required by your customers. However, a lot of the project management training currently available is either too specialised, confining itself to a particular methodology, or too excessive, being aimed at full-time professional project managers. This course, on the other hand, aims at giving a general overview of the subject and is designed to give an awareness of Project Management to all staff that need it, not just the specialists. It also serves as an introduction to more specialised project management training.
