Project Management Fundamentals
  focuses on the practical skills needed by Project Managers to successfully manage and control projects. Your workshop leader will demonstrate ways to build on the traditional measures of time, cost and quality, to manage stakeholder expectations, balance risks and opportunities and create value.

In this interactive workshop, delegates will walk through a case study tailored to reinforce the learning from each session, and will be encouraged to contribute from their own experience. The delegates will be guided by an experienced senior project manager, who has also held senior roles in large organisations and researched project success in IT, construction, and business change projects.

The proven and effective processes contained in the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK® Guide will be used to uncover the real requirements of a project’s stakeholders, define the correct scope and create the deliverables (on time and on budget) that deliver tangible benefits to the organisation.

Delegates will learn:

  • The vital skills needed to manage a project successfully
  • How to develop and use Schedules, Gantt charts and other project documentation as a communication tool
  • The critical importance of proactive stakeholder management
  • The difference between delivering value and just being ‘on schedule’
  • A stakeholder centric approach to developing an effective project charter
  • What a successful project plan should contain
  • How to develop a culture of successful project management
Note:  This is a practical project management course focused on building capability within an organisation. We offer two other courses that meet different requirements:
  1. Our CAPM course is focused on preparing candidates for the PMI CAPM examination. The 4 day CAPM course covers a similar range of processes to this PM Fundamentals course but focuses on the full depth of knowledge required for success in the CAPM examination. See more on CAPM Training
  2. Organisations wishing to advance their existing project management practice may find our Advanced PM Master Class more appropriate. The 1 or 2 day Advanced PM Master Classcovers a similar range of topics to this course but assumes an initial level of competency in the delegates and focuses on enhanced practice. See more on the Advanced PM Master Class.
