Project Management Essentials

Learn the key concepts and tools for effective project delivery

Project Manager is more than just a job title. There’s a proven link between effective project management and the delivery of successful results. This requires knowledge of the professional skills, techniques and methods used to take a piece of work from first concepts to successful delivery.

This comprehensive one-day workshop equips those new to project management with an overview of the key concepts and techniques they’ll need to tackle assignments as well-managed projects.
