Project Management Fundamentals

A One Day Workshop for Non-Project Managers

Project management is not just for designated project managers. A project—no matter the size—requires you to use sound project management principles, including interacting with stakeholders, managing and mitigating risk, and following the project lifecycle.
If these projects are not managed effectively it can result in delays, wasted effort, increased costs, negative impact on organizational reputation as well as stress and failure to deliver on the full benefits of the project. With some basic project management training, staff can gain the right skills and knowledge to better manage these projects.
The workshop has been designed and will be delivered by a certified project manager. The course provides hands-on experience on using best-practice tools and techniques to plan and manage a project successfully.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Define project management terms
  • Describe fundamental project management concepts
  • Identify project stakeholders
  • Develop a project charter
  • Describe the planning process
  • Organize project work using a work breakdown structure
  • Understand scheduling and budgeting concepts
  • Identify Possible Risk Factors
  • Manage the project status, including identifying Issues, Actions and Decisions needed
  • Anyone who needs to know how to manage tasks or small projects with a structured approach to ensure success
  • Project team members with little prior knowledge of project management
  • Those who are making the transition into project management
  • A workbook filled with best practices, customizable templates and pointers
  • Digital copies of templates introduced in the workshop
