Online Training: Practical Project Management


Project and Project Management are much used terms, often without a thorough understanding of what distinguishes a project from other work or programmes.  This webinar seeks to clarify what we mean when we say project and demonstrate how a practical approach can be beneficial.

The are many excellent methodologies available which are particularly useful when it comes to larger projects.  But what about the huge number of projects which are much smaller in terms of resources required, both financial and staff.  It is also much harder to properly understand a larger project and the methods employed without a clear understanding of the key principles of ‘Practical Project Management’.

This workshop introduces the nine essential parts of any project not just for work but in other aspects of your life as well.  Change means projects and projects mean change and the unprecedented circumstances of the pandemic have necessitated quick adjustment but will also create many more projects related to the ‘new normal’. One of the most fundamental being faced by many organisations is reopening workplaces safely.
