With ever-increasing workloads and deadlines, the ability to manage our time has never been more important. Project management is a crucial factor in work and our project management courses are created to ensure that delegates can make their work based projects as efficient and effective as possible. We do this by supplying a project management training course that is full of tools and tips for improving project planning, time planning, delegation, organisation and management strategies, managing meetings, as well as handling and using time effectively. Our time management course will cover subjects such as goal setting, improving organisation skills and managing time successfully.

9.30am-1.00pm      

Introduction, aims and course objectives.

Principals of Project Planning.

Planning tools – creating a vision; formulating strategy; the decision making process; writing the project proposal; mind mapping; sequencing events; critical pathways; establishing project inter-relationships; planning for contingencies; essential project communications; establishing individual and group controls, authority, and responsibilities

1.30pm-2.15pm  Lunch

Afternoon 2.15pm-5.30pm

Planning the project

The rest of the afternoon gives delegates the opportunity to try out the Project Planning tools on a prepared scenario. They will be under time pressure to complete their tasks and will have to cope with naturally occurring changes along the way. The groups are expected to work closely together and will carry out mini evaluation meetings to ensure they are on the correct path. Although unexpected situations will happen, the final evaluation will depend on; the strength of the original strategy, the completeness of the planning process, the communication within the group members and the joint management of controls.

Course logistics

Proposed methods of training will include:

  • Course tutor to facilitate interactive learning
  • Case studies
  • Workgroups with plenary sessions
  • Video scenarios with discussion.
  • Group discussion.

All delegates will receive a workbook that doubles as an excellent post course reference manual.
