What’s covered in this course?

The evening work is a key part of the course and may take approximately two hours to complete although some delegates may choose to extend this time.
 
Context and Governance
 
The governance and setting of a project will heavily influence how it is managed. This section will cover topics such as:
 

  • The difference between project and operational work
  • Programme and portfolio management
  • Project team roles
  • The governance of a project across its life cycle

 
Concept Phase
 
It is essential that the need for a project is identified and understood before its viability can then be judged. This may involve:
 

  • Identifying and managing stakeholders
  • Creating a business case
  • Assessing project success and benefits
  • Procuring resources and contract management

 
Definition Phase
 
The definition phase is often where the project manager is most heavily involved and we look at a structured approach for planning the project – both in terms of what needs to be done and also how it will be done.
 

  • Requirements and scope management
  • Schedule and resource management
  • Budgeting and cost management

 
Development Phase
 
Putting the plan into action will require the project manager to undertake many of the following actions.
 

  • Project control, including cost control through earned value management
  • Manage information and reports
  • Risk and issue management
  • Health and safety
  • Quality management
  • Change control and configuration management

 
Managing the Team
 
No project is successful without an engaged and committed team. This requires the project manager to utilise a number of interpersonal skills.
 

  • Communication
  • Conflict management
  • Build and lead the team

 
Project Handover and Closure
 
Formal closure of a project will help ensure that the deliverables are handed over in a structured manner and that the team and the organisation has reviewed and learned from the performance on the project.
 

  • Project handover
  • Project reviews
