Project Management Fundamentals Training Course

During this one day Introduction to Project Management training course you will learn the theory and practical skills to enhance your performance as a Project Manager and ensure the success of your projects.

Project Management Course Introduction

Project management is an intrinsic part of working life.

Although they may not always recognise it, many people lead and manage projects on a daily basis whether it be running an event, hiring a new member of staff, or producing a new flyer. 

Many in this position have not had any training to develop the skills required to manage projects effectively. 

For most of these people, a formal certification course requires a considerable time commitment, and is not necessary for the job role. 

This course aims to bridge the gap by delivering the key elements of formal certification courses, but in a shorter format and with an increased emphasis on practical tips to implement the theories. 

This 1 day Project Management Fundamentals course is led by a certified PMP Project Management consultant, with years of experience managing projects of all sizes in various industries.

Project Management Fundamentals Course Objectives

Using the tools and techniques you acquire throughout the day you will

  • Become familiar with Project Management terminology, and the responsibilities of a Project Manager
  • Develop an appreciation of how to set the project strategy, including when to make significant investments in the project
  • Understand the need for active decisions on time, cost, quality and scope.
  • Understand project management principles of work breakdown structure, scheduling, forecasting and critical path
  • Gain confidence to use standard Project Management software to create a Gantt chart
  • Develop a risk management plan, and understand principles of how to use this to reduce project risks
  • Learn tools to track project progress
  • Learn the importance of managing stakeholders, and explore alternative communication approaches
  • Managing change projects- how to achieve transformational change
