PM Fundamentals

Don’t get left behind…

If you take a step back and review the roles set-up within your organisation, it can be suggested that it’s not just those with the official title of project manager who manage the day-to-day projects within your business.

Imagine the productivity increase that could be achieved for your business if you placed your staff on training that would allow them to understand fundamental project management groundings that they can then adapt to their role.

What you gain from the course

Enrol for Project Management Fundamentals and you’ll gain:

  • Hands-on, business ready expertise that you can immediately apply
  • Comprehensive Project Management Fundamentals program materials and case studies

About this course

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

The workshop 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 extensive and continuing involvement in assisting organisations to achieve rapid results in project delivery capability.

Workshop Objective

As its name implies, this workshop provides participants with the essential knowledge and skills to both manage a project end-to-end and understand the fundamental steps in every project’s life cycle. Using a real-life case study, this workshop is designed to enable learnings to be transferred directly into the workplace.

How this course is delivered


A comprehensive participant handbook is provided, which includes a set of completed sample project management documents.
