Introduction to Project Management

 

Failed projects.  Something we hear about time and time again.  The failure of a company to successfully deliver on a project.  The taxpayer’s Alliance uncovered over £100m of scrapped or failed IT projects, but it’s not just IT projects. Think of Wembley Stadium, the Millennium Dome, or those road works outside your house.

Every organisation, regardless of size, is involved projects in one form or another.  From the development of a flag-ship new product, to a service re-design, an office re-location or recruiting a new member of staff.  They are all projects (activities with a definitive starting and end date and a clear objective).

Yet, it’s our experience that effective project management is one of least understood management tools; leading to projects that are late, over budget, don’t deliver all their promised outcomes or worse – are abandoned. It’s been suggested that 80% of ‘high-performing’ projects are led by a trained project manager.  Our entry-level project management course is the perfect starting point in making sure your projects succeed through design rather than luck.
