PM in Practice

Don’t get left behind…

Companies recognise that effective project management is a key factor in assuring project success. A knowledgeable and experienced project manager will drive an optimal project result and maximise the project’s return on investment.

The mark of a truly successful project manager is how they think and behave in the face of the multitude of ‘less-than-ideal’ situations that they are destined to face almost every day of their project management lives. They accept full responsibility for a project’s outcomes and assume the requisite authority to match. These high-performing project managers can strike a delicate balance of the following: analytical and critical thinking skills, superior communication, leadership, negotiation and facilitation skills, combined with a problem-solving, results-oriented focus.

This course has been designed with all the above in mind. With a range of best practice principles as its foundation, this course builds upon participants’ existing skills and knowledge by way of a ‘guided tour’ through a series of real-life scenarios, problems and issues faced by project managers across the board.
