In this first section, we'll cover the basics. Projects come in all shapes and sizes. We'll look at what a project is, the project manager and the project management triangle to get users thinking about what it means to manage a project.

Every project goes through five distinct stages. In this final section, we consider an employee's role at each stage and how they can keep the project moving forwards towards success. This could be a personal or professional project - it doesn’t matter!

Why is this training important?

Business benefits

In today’s vastly interconnected world, where people from all over the globe can collaborate almost instantly, organising and controlling that workflow is more essential than ever.

It requires a range of skills to help take a vision and turn it into a reality - one which is on time, within budget, and top-quality.

Whilst it can be tempting to dive into work and hope for the best, ultimately, better project management produces better projects.

With a solid plan at the outset, you can:

  • Ensure all parties are on the same page
  • Work to a strategic goal
  • Be prepared for the unexpected
