Making projects work
Methods, such as PRINCE2®, provide a process based life-cycle for project management, but do not in themselves lead to good planning and execution. To achieve that requires going beyond the method.
In this action-based three-plus-two day workshop, we support you through the process of developing and executing a project plan that is based on a clear mission that encapsulates business value.
Treating the plan as a map, rather than a route, we show how you can increase the success rate of your projects.
The first module focuses on producing the plan based on achievement – delivering products that address stakeholder expectations.
The second module will widen your experience in a safe, learning environment, when the plan is executed within the context of changing business needs and resourcing.
The purpose of the Making projects work workshop is to help make you an effective project manager, who is able to manage the delivery of a product with a degree of expertise, using disciplines of project management with understanding and confidence. The course focuses on challenges associated with the delivery and implementation of new processes, services and products.
You will discover how the application of a disciplined approach to the running of projects significantly reduces the risk of failure. As a result of attending this workshop, you will be able to plan effectively, focus on project achievement, and better manage the expectations of senior stakeholders.
