"Best training I have taken throughout my time (5years) in Schrader Technologies.  Highly recommended."  Project Management Essentials delivered by Elite Training, 2017"

Essential Project Management

(1 or 2 days depending on requirements)

Project Management is the management of a distinct piece of work, not part of normal routine operations, focused on the delivery of a number of key outputs.  These “outputs” will then be used by the organisation or customer to generate a number of benefits.   Such benefits might include: improved efficiency, new products ready for market, reduced operating costs etc.

Whilst the focus is on the delivery of the specified outputs, the “journey” itself must be well managed.  Poorly managed projects result in wasted resources, lost opportunity costs, programme & capacity planning issues etc.  Consequently, successful delivery of the project comprises not only the delivery of the final outputs but the management of the project itself.

This course will address the essential knowledge and skill requirements to successfully manage a project.
