Effective Project Management for All

Many managers find themselves managing projects – sometimes modest in scale and often not even recognised as a project. Nevertheless effective delivery requires proactive management of tasks and people to ensure delivery.

Our highly practical workshop provides lay managers with the principles and tools they need to manage a project, and perhaps as importantly, the impact on other people. We show you how to manage planning and implementation to ensure a smooth running project and sustained business impact.
