Project Management Fundamentals (2 Day Course)

ALIGNED TO UNIT STANDARD ID 120372, NQF LEVEL 4, 5 CREDITS

All employees in an organisation may at times work with projects. This may bring you into contact with consultants, project teams and project managers. Whilst you may not manage specific projects it is important that you understand both the technical and managerial aspects of project management. This will ensure that you and your organisation can make an informed contribution to the projects and can monitor implementation and outcomes.

Project management requires special knowledge and skills. Many projects are cancelled before they are completed. Many are completed late and cost well over their original estimates. And, of the rare few which are completed, on-time and within budget, many do not meet the needs of the project stakeholders. It is essential that effective project managers develop the organisational and interpersonal skills needed to manage a project from the strategic stage through to completion. Upon completion of this course you will be able to start operating in a project environment by understanding the terminology used in a project management environment. You’ll also be able to interpret and explain the fundamental concepts of project management.
