Practical project management



This practical training session introduces the nine essential parts of any project.  It will help clarify what we mean when we say project and demonstrate how a practical approach can be beneficial.  The session will help you understand the key principles of practical project management and methods employed for large and small projects.

Change means projects and projects mean change and the challenges faced by organisations have necessitated quick adjustment and new strategies. This will also create many more projects related to the ‘transformation’.

What others are saying about LGIU training

I would definitely recommend this session on project planning to any of my colleagues. The trainers were super knowledgable and helpful – plus the handouts were great for coming back to the concepts down the road.
