Project management is becoming an increasingly important skill. As organisations change to become flatter, more customer focused and flexible, the people in those organisations must also change. Managers may now find themselves responsible for a series of projects rather than a department or process. They are judged by the success of these projects and careers are built or broken on a manager’s ability to deliver a specific result.
Project management is not, however separate from day to day management skills. An effective project manager will call upon a wide range of skills, including planning, teamwork, resource management, and delegation.
Projects may also be found in every area of commerce from installation of a new factory line to delivery of a training course.
However, project management is more than a series of general management skills, it is the ability to combine and utilise all of these skills to produce a result. You might say it is the art of getting the right result.
This course aims to help delegates get the results they want.
