Introduction to Project Management Training Courses

Project Managers use knowledge, skills, tools and methodologies to ensure the following:

  •  Identify the goals, objectives, requirements, and limitations of the project
  • Co-ordinate the different needs and expectations of the project stakeholders
  • Plan, execute and control the tasks, phases, deliverables of the project based on the identified and agreed project goals and objectives
  • Close the project on completion and capture the knowledge accrued.

Our project management training courses are designed to introduce managers to the broad concepts of Project Management.

What Is Project Management

Organisational activity can be broadly classified as either operations – a series of routine and repetitive tasks necessary to sustain the business; or projects – a unique and temporary activity necessary to fulfil a strategic goal of an organisation.

Therefore, successful Project Management is about completing a project on time, within budget, and with the needs of the business fully met.

Origins of Project Management

Could the Great Wall of China (221 B.C. – 206 B.C.), the Pyramids of Giza (2,550 B.C.) or Stonehenge (3,500 B.C) have been built without project management? It is possible to say that the concept of project management has been around since the beginning of history. It has enabled leaders to plan bold and massive projects and manage funding, materials and labour within a designated time frame.
