Programme scope

The programme explains the project management process comprehensively from initial sponsorship, through planning, budgeting, risk management, routine metrics/reporting, issues/decision-making, to closeout. It also explains the critical leadership and team skills, especially relevant in our sector, particular in engaging matrix teams without direct authority and resolving conflict.

Programme content

The topics are introduced by interactive eLearning modules, with clear explanations of project techniques, using videos and animations. Also where relevant, assessment questionnaires will give useful feedback and guidance. Deeper exploration is provided by live workshops (provided as online sessions), working with expert trainers, using case studies and opportunities to share participants’ own challenges.
