Effective Project Management

Programme Overview

More people are getting involved in projects, both large and small. Increasingly these projects are carried out over and above the normal workload. As a consequence some projects may take longer than desired. Whatever the size or scale of the project, there are several tools of the trade which can be employed to ensure their success

Course Objectives

Through discussion, lecture and exercises, the course will take people through the different
stages of successfully implementing a project. Also considered will be a wide range of issues
