This course was designed and developed by the CPD Centre in conjunction with staff from the University of Oxford's Saïd Business School.
The course will look at the critical elements of project management as shown below:
- Re-thinking project management: why we need different approaches, your success formula and defining your project scope
- Key technical issues: Managing schedule, RAIDs (risks, assumptions, issues, dependencies) and resouces
- People-power politics: Good project governance, shaping human behaviour and project culture
The course offers a condensed, yet comprehensive, overview of current and emerging best-practice methodologies and techniques for meeting the challenges of managing multiple, complex projects in construction, digital, technology, science, energy, defence and other sectors.
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 are delivered successfully and flexibly throughout the project lifecycle from idea through to delivery and close-out.
In short, Project Management ensures organisations are fit for the future and this course will teach you how to improve the delivery of projects in your organisation.
Each session will be 90 minutes, deliverd at 10:30 - 12:00 (UK time), on Tuesday 8, Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 December 2020.
