Project Management in Practice

Module 2

Project Management In Practice
Overview (Module 2)

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.

This course provides participants with the opportunity to…

  • Critically analyse and problem-solve within a project based on typical, real-life scenarios.
  • Gain real-life skills for facing challenges they’ll be faced with when managing projects.
  • Build upon fundamental project management concepts.
  • Apply effective interpersonal, leadership and communications skills that will help appropriately engage and manage stakeholders throughout the life of a project.
  • Collaborate and share experiences and knowledge with other practicing project managers.
KEY TOPICS

Project selection and feasibility
Exploration of how projects fit into the organisational context and how they are kept in line with organisational strategies and goals.

Although this course does not cover Agile practices in detail, an overview of relevant Agile practices, tools and techniques will be discussed in each session for context.

Trainers of this course will use a case study delivery approach to provide participants with a ‘hands-on’, multi-faceted and challenging learning experience.

Participants will be actively engaged in progressing the project from conception to closure, and in building the necessary documentation and communications tools to do so.

Courses are facilitated by our expert team and can be conducted onsite, at our premises or virtually. All courses can be customised to suit your requirements.

Materials: A comprehensive participant handbook is provided.
