Project Management with Microsoft Project – Training Workshop

Workshop Overview

For employees who need to manage projects but are not full time project managers, learning the techniques is done, more often than not, through trial and error. This process of learning can be streamlined with effective project management training and this workshop provides delegates with a structured framework to allow them to plan, monitor and control all aspects of a project. It will enable them to be able to motivate their team to achieve the project objectives on time and the specified cost & quality.

It is ideal for individuals that are running small to medium sized projects and need to learn tools that will enable them to run their projects effectively. This programme will also incorporate using “Microsoft Project” as the basis for organising monitoring and controlling the component parts of a project. The programme is engaging and experiential, with a range of practical exercises, best practice and theory to fully engage those attending.
