This four-day course is well named. Its aim is to enable students to apply best-practice tools and techniques to real-world project situations.
To that end, each topic includes hands-on exercises to ensure that the students are confident in applying these tools and techniques in their own work environments. These exercises can be based on one of your organization’s projects, or on real-world, industry-based, case studies.
This course will explore how to define the business goal of the project, clarify what is to be done (i.e. define its scope), develop a schedule and a budget, anticipate and manage risks, acquire resources both internally and externally, manage the project through execution – dealing with change requests, managing conflicts and ensuring that all stakeholders are kept up to date on progress – and, finally, closing out the project when the work is complete.
