This Project management course deals with the technical aspects of project management, including planning and estimating time, budgeting and costing, and risk analysis. We also explore the 'people' skills involved: communicating with project teams, stakeholders and project champions.
Who should attend
This Project management training is aimed at those with only a little experience of project management who want to learn the basic skills and get some tips and techniques for introducing the disciplines of project management. It would also be very useful for those who have some experience of small projects and want to further develop their skills.
