Irrespective of an individual’s profession, or even in a personal capacity, they will have to manage projects at some point. This programme arms professionals with cutting-edge project management knowledge and enhanced project management skills: The ones needed (1) to excel in their role, either as a new or more experienced project manager, (2) to take their projects and their career to the next level, and (3) to make themselves indispensable in a world that will always require excellent project managers.
The programme is based on the PMBOK process groups and the PRINCE2® principles. Participants will learn to apply international standard Project Management philosophies, principles, and techniques that will enable them to plan, analyse, measure progress, control, and report on any project – irrespective of the scope or industry. It equips participants with the skills necessary to assess and determine situations that warrant a project approach in order to achieve strategic objectives.
The objective of the programme is to acquaint participants with the practical and theoretical principles and techniques with which a specific team produces an identified, once-off project, within specified time, cost, and performance targets. Our approach is not to present or promote a specific methodology for project
management, but rather the philosophy, principles and techniques involved in the management of projects.
