An Introduction to Project Management

You will learn what makes a project, develop your knowledge of the project life-cycle, explore organisational structure and look at the environmental factors that can come in to play throughout the process.

Leading a Project

Managing people and applying the necessary project processes are key factors in leading a project. You will look at how leadership can help to shape a project. The team building and motivational techniques you can use to do this successfully, look at ways to manage conflict that may arise during the project life cycle and delve into the art of negotiation.

Initiating a Project

You will look at the approach to project initiation including development of the business case, scoping out of projects, identifying the needs of project stakeholders and putting in place measures to control the changes that may occur during a project.

Project Planning

We all know the old adage ‘fail to plan, plan to fail’ and most studies find that poor planning is primarily at fault for project failure. Making sure you get this right, schedule your resources correctly and have a clear communication plan to share with stakeholders are all important areas of study in this module.

Project Implementation

Having the ability to oversee a project and having the ability to manage change as and when it occurs are important to ensuring project delivery. By looking at monitoring and reviewing projects, procurement needs, understanding risks and getting to grips with quality management you will develop a toolbox to help you deliver projects effectively.

Our tutors are all experts in their field and will make sure that your workshop training really takes your understanding to the next level. They all have plenty of experience, working across multiple sectors in lots of different roles, which provides a useful insight for budding managers. 

Modern day professionals in all industries are expected to complete projects as part of their ‘day job’. Project Management skills benefit a wide range of roles and can improve your success in many careers from HR through to Finance.

  • Assistant project manager
  • Junior project manager
  • Associate project manager
  • Project Manager
  • Senior Project Manager
  • Project team member

There are roles which use the skills of project management, for example, business change manager and business improvement manager. 

When you have built up your experience as a project manager you may be able to apply to become a Chartered Project Manager.
