Project Management Fundamentals

Don’t get left behind…

Industry research shows that a third of all projects are delivered late. To add to this, even more come in over budget or run past the original deadline, and 28% fail altogether. How you lead a project or perform in a project team can dictate the success or failure of each initiative or project that you are involved in, regardless of its size or complexity.

Our interactive course provides you with proven techniques, tools and processes to deliver projects within specification, on time and on budget.

The course is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), current research and best practice industry standards, as well as drawing upon the extensive experience of PM-Partners group’s broad ranging and continuing involvement in assisting organisations to achieve rapid results in project delivery capability.

About this Course

As its name implies, this course will provide participants with the essential knowledge and skills to both manage a project end-to-end, and/or be an effective and valuable member of the project team.

The course covers the fundamental steps in every project’s life cycle and uses a real-life case study approach to follow a project from conception through to completion and final review.

The focus is on immediate and direct knowledge transfer to the workplace.

Please note: While Agile concepts are introduced, this is not an Agile course. PM-Partners offers many Agile courses, the overviews for which can be located on our website.
