Project Management

How to deliver your projects within budget, on time, with high quality results.

Every year, many organisations spend a significant amount of money and time implementing projects, and every year many of these go over budget, are delivered late and often with poor results.

These courses provide a “hands on” introduction to the practical use of project management tools and practices, such as those internationally recognised by the Project Management Institute. Participants will learn to define, plan and manage projects using approaches that allow flexibility whilst retaining rigorous control of cost, budget and schedule.
