Utilising PMBOK, a global standard for managing projects, this 2-day Project Management training course will give you an overview of the entire project management process, as well as covering key project management tools that can be used every day.

The importance of delivering business results to specification, on time and within budget, is critical to the success of any project.  And that is exactly what professional project management skills enable you to do - even if it is not officially called a 'project'. The ability to successfully manage projects from beginning to end, no matter their size, is a highly desirable skill in today’s workplace.

In this course you'll learn required skills like estimating and scheduling as well as how to produce project-related documentation like project plan worksheets, charters and communication plans.  Learn how to use planning tools like Gantt and RACI charts, establish baselines and much more.

This dynamic training course is available now throughout Australia, including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Parramatta, Canberra and Perth.

Course Foreword

In the past few decades, organisations have discovered that the principles used to create enormous successes in large projects can be applied to projects of any size. As a result, many employees are expected to understand project management techniques and how to apply them to projects of any size.

The project management role is arguably the most challenging of roles within the project team. As the project progresses through its various life cycle stages, project managers must be able to adapt themselves to the changing demands of the project and the team.

Effective and efficient Project Managers will ensure project success and help organisations and individuals exceed stakeholder expectations. This workshop will introduce participants to the entire project management process, as well as key project management tools and principles that can be used every day.
