Description

“Be prepared, luck is where preparation meets opportunity.”

Randy Pausch

Many companies are realizing that the traditional project management principles are no longer applicable in today’s extremely dynamic and demanding environment. A fixed approach of planning is no longer a good method since it is very difficult to anticipate everything in advance and respond to it in the plan. Instead, more agile planning methods are required to accommodate for changing markets, technology and resources over the course of a typical project.

As a result, new project managers must be systematically thought on best practices and established management techniques. In this course, participants will understand the role of project manager as a broker of information. The emphasis here is on the day-to-day running of a project as opposed to leading a team using emotional skills (for that see Team Leadership Course).

Participants walk through a case study using a number of exercises throughout the course while learning about milestones, planning, work breakdown structures (WBS) and risk analysis.

Participants will learn how to manage time, resources, cost, risk and quality using a variety of practical hands-on exercises. This course includes the following topics:

About the Design Philosophy of Project Management Course

The best way to know what to teach in a project management course is to have some previous experience of dealing with both small and large scale projects. At Skills Converged, we continuously deal with projects and we know what it takes to quickly release products and meet deadlines. Our motivation in designing this course was to put together the most critical tricks of the trade in a training package so Project Management trainers can quickly pass on the skills to people who need them.

In our experience, there are usually three kinds of delegates:

  1. One type consists of people who are good at what they do. Their potentials have been discovered by their superiors and they are encouraged to move up the chain. They might be sent to a course as a reward or as a preparation for their managerial role. They may not know a lot about project management, but they could be very good in their respective fields.
  2. Another type of delegates attend project management course because they have always learned everything on the job and didn’t have any formal training. They are usually quite energetic, are good problem solvers and keen to know everything. Unfortunately, they might have developed bad habits already which must be addressed.
  3. A third type comes to the course on their own initiative to learn more. They have already managed projects, know a thing or two about Gantt charts, budgets, work packages and so on but may not be familiar with more elaborate topics such as critical path analysis and risk management. They may also need help in fields such as meeting management especially in dealing with strong characters.

When designing the Project Management course, we considered all of the above types of people and sequenced the content in such way that all of them could benefit from the course. One of the keys in achieving this objective is exercises. Case studies on all levels can keep everyone challenged at the right level while creating an environment where more experienced delegates can pass on their expertise to those who are less experienced. This provides an ideal environment for you as a trainer where delegates are encouraged to do most of the teaching and learning under your careful observation and guidance.
