Overview

Unless you are employed as a Project Manager, projects are usually one off pieces of work that sit outside of your regular day to day employment duties.  They vary in size/complexity and always have a definitive start and end date with a measurable outcome.  As they sit outside of your day to day activity you will require a different set of skills to successfully manage these projects and bring them to a successful close.

This one day course is designed to provide an introduction and an easy step by step guide to managing a project from start to finish.
