This one day workshop is aimed at people who want to understand the fundamental principles of project working, typically team members with some elements of project management in their day-to-day role or for those who regularly participate in project teams. It assumes little previous project management knowledge. 

The syllabus covers an introduction to project management, project life cycles, initiating and identifying the scope of a project, defining needs of stakeholders, developing a business case, creating a project and communications plan and establishing key success factors.

The workshop also covers the key roles of project team members, managing expectations of stakeholders (client) and others, whilst engaging motivations to deliver according to your plan. It will introduce some monitoring tools and techniques for project team meetings, managing change during a project and how to report on progress.
