Course Aims:

Do you want to practise and develop your project management skills in a simulated project environment?

This workshop will provide a unique opportunity for those who are fairly new to project management to make the transition from theory to practice. As a team, the attendees will prepare for and conduct a ‘project’ in a number of stages. After each stage, a structured review will provide the opportunity to explore the aspects of project management relevant to that stage.

This programme is for you if you would like to experience the dynamics of working as part of a project team in a workshop environment. You will be able to practise and develop project tools and techniques whilst learning all the constituents of successful project management.
