Project Management
Professional Development Programme

Participants: For those with some experience of managing projects. Participants should have the level of knowledge that would be gained from attendance on the Project Management, an Introduction course. This course would be particularly suitable for staff that are about to start a large project.

To provide a wider perspective for those with some experience of managing projects and to build upon the skills learned in the Project Management, an Introduction course.

  • discuss the 7S framework for projects
  • look at models of different types of projects and help you to understand how different approaches to project management should be taken according to the type of project
  • improve your approach to estimating the various factors and parameters within a project
  • help you understand the roles stakeholders play in projects and discuss approaches to stakeholder identification and management
