About the workshop
Successful projects rely on two major disciplines: effective planning and control and systematic risk management. This workshop is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to undertake these vital management tasks.
Each week of the workshop has a distinctive theme. Week one focuses on practical project planning and control and week two on risk management techniques. Although this is a two-week programme, you are welcome to join either just week one or just week two.
What the workshop will cover
Week one of the workshop will boost your skills by equipping you with effective strategies, practical tools and techniques to identify, develop, plan, control and implement programmes and projects which are aligned to the objectives of your organisation. You will also benefit from extensive practical hands-on experience.
Week two of the workshop covers risk management, an essential part of the overall management toolkit. Integrated risk management, planning for counter- measures, and contingency plans are vital to the control and success of major projects and this week will provide a sound grounding to assist in successful project delivery.
How participants will benefit
During the two weeks, you will:
• Increase your capabilities to define, appraise, plan, implement and control programmes and projects to deliver strategic benefits for your organisation
• Understand how to manage risks such as COVID-19 and the challenges to managing projects during periods of pandemic or emergency
• Effectively plan, control and evaluate a range of programmes and projects
• Identify and avoid the common causes of project failure by applying best practice in project and programme management.
