Description

“A project is a temporary endeavour undertaken to create a unique product, service or result.” (Source: PMI PMBOK Guide)

“A project is a temporary organisation that is created for the purpose of delivering one or more business products according to an agreed Business Case.” (Source: PRINCE2 2009 Edition)

A project structure enables organisations to introduce change. While business as usual operations can and should seek to improve performance (through continual process improvement), it is not geared up to design, develop and deliver something new and unique: that’s where projects come into play.

The best project managers –and teams - are those who deliver their projects consistently on time and within budget, meeting or exceeding the expectations of the stakeholders. Effective project teams are able to perform consistently, blending a shared understanding of agreed methodologies and techniques with strong leadership and people skills.

Our two day, interactive workshop equips participants with a set of tools immediately applicable in the workplace, taking you through each stage of the life cycle of a project. It is equally pertinent for seasoned project team members, those new to the discipline and others who are involved intermittently as required.

The modules are grouped under the following headings:

  • Introduction
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Project initiation
  • Project planning
  • Project execution
  • Project closeout

 

By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained an understanding of key project success factors and typical pitfalls; techniques for managing critical stakeholder relationships; and have tools and tips for managing key stages of the project lifecycle.

Activities are based around a case study which may be tailored for in-house client courses. 

 

Topics Covered

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to develop a project charter
  • Hold a project kick-off meeting to bring the team together
  • Develop a scope description, scope boundaries and identify deliverables
  • Break down the project into subprojects and define the subproject deliverables
  • Assess the risk of the deliverables and develop countermeasures to address
Outcomes

From this course, you will be able to apply fundamental project management techniques to your project and gain skills in directing the resources required to run a smooth project.
