Specifically, the course covers the following key areas:
- What is a project? And what is Project Management?

We offer another course for those with experience in project management, Advanced Project Management.
The Essentials of Project Management course is designed specifically to benefit scientists, engineers and others in large or small public and private sector organisations with responsibility for project delivery, and assumes no prior training in project management techniques.
As organisations seek to increase efficiency and cut costs in the increasingly challenging business climate, a focus on selecting, prioritizing and delivering the right projects that directly support the strategy of the organisation is more important than ever.
Key to this strategic objective is effective Project Management, a framework to ensure that investments in projects, resource allocation, monitoring and evaluation is optimised throughout project life-cycles and through to delivery and close-out.
In short, Project Management ensures organisations do the right projects the right way.
