 Project Management for Non Project Managers

  Course Code - BC-503   Duration - 1 Day

This 1-day course is for you if you have been asked to run, or take part in a project, and ‘Project Manager’ is not in your job title.

We create projects as a structured way to make things happen or to deal with change. This may be things like moving office, organising an event, installing a new system, planning a campaign or developing a product.

This one day workshop will introduce you to a straightforward and jargon-free way to manage projects. Once learned, you can apply these simple but effective skills to any project.

The course is also a useful introduction for project team members enabling them to gain an overall understanding of the benefits of a structured Project Management Approach.

Delegates will learn how to get the project off the ground through to successful completion. We will share with you the simple principles you need to plan, run and finish your project.
