Advantages of this course
- When managing a project, you will be concerned with converting the objectives into distinct packages of work. The way those packages of work are then managed depends on a number of factors, such as available resources or the specific nature of the objectives. This course will guide you through this process, and will also outline the importance of the closure and evaluation stage; an often overlooked part of project management.
- Training is given through a filmed tutorial, references to websites for reading, presentations on ‘Project implementation plans’ and ‘Tools and techniques’, and a good practice video
- There is suggested extended reading to give both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
- An additional activity encourages you to reflect on your learning
