Project Management: A Practical Approach


Learn how to manage your projects successfully with practical skills such as project planning, scheduling, tracking, change management and reporting.

This introductory workshop also emphasizes the importance of working with people to clarify expectations, define roles, and build commitment.

The topic areas are introduced and then applied immediately to projects suggested by the participants. The day concludes with a practical case project starting at initiation, through planning, execution, and control to closure for practice in applying the skills learned.

Topic areas:

  • What are: projects, project management, and project managers,
  • Know the destination: scope definition,
  • Laying a route: work breakdown structure, schedule, and risk,
  • The human side: resources, responsibilities, and relationships,
  • Making headway: controlling scope, reporting progress.
