Workshop overview

Project management is critical to the success of every organization/business entity. The recent industry research in the EU indicates that more than 70% of all projects hit roadblocks, are over budget or are late. And approximately 30% of these projects fail altogether.
Project managers face constant pressure to cut costs, implement projects quickly, and deliver high quality. Without thoughtful planning, execution and monitoring of efforts, organizations will lose business to those that effectively manage their projects. There is a special emphasis on causes of project failure and how to mitigate these issues through proper planning in the early phases of a new initiative. A key and often overlooked challenge for project managers is the ability to manage without influence—to gain the support of stakeholders and access to resources not directly under their management control.
This course adds to your fundamental knowledge of project management by teaching you the details of the major contemporary tools and techniques that are used in planning, monitoring, and controlling projects. The appropriate technologies are used to give the participant a “best practices” approach to the effective and efficient management of projects. Your learning is reinforced through a number of practical exercises using case studies and real projects.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for professionals who now, or in the future, will be leading or be a part of a project team. This mainly pertains to mid – level managers that are interested in or have mastered the planning process, are experienced with all aspects of the discipline, and are now looking for ways to develop their execution and control skills on larger, more complex projects.

How will you benefit?

During the course, project management theory will be interspersed with practical, hands-on activities. More than half of course time is dedicated to experience-based skills development. In the remaining class time, the participants will learn about methodologies and put practical skills into context.
This course will focus on project management methodology that will increase your ability to initiate and manage projects more efficiently and effectively. You will learn key project management phases through an innovative model, and you will have the opportunity to apply these phases to a case study and a final project.
This course will give participants an overview of the entire project management process, as well as key project management tools that they can use every day:

· The skill and confidence to use a practical project planning technique.
· The ability to determine if a project can truly be delivered on time and in budget.
· Deploy and lead high performance project management teams in your organization
· Impart project management knowledge, tools, and processes to your colleagues
· An understanding of how to discover the risks necessary to meet a constrained delivery date.
· The confidence to communicate project “trade-offs” clearly and set attainable goals with clients, managers, and project team members.
· The knowledge of how to record actual project progress and then use the project baseline to spot and manage variance.
· The ability to “frame” your questions when analyzing the project plan to spot hidden variances.
