Advanced Project Management

Project management may be perceived as a ‘hard’ skill, yet experienced project managers continue to emphasise that ‘soft’ skills are equally, if not more, important. This course focuses on the current body of technical project management knowledge and also places strong emphasis on leadership, team dynamics and stakeholder management.

Participants will learn to analyse and evaluate the processes and techniques required to select and manage projects that will meet the strategic objectives of an organisation.

This course will benefit managers, executives, entrepreneurs and individuals who require additional knowledge and skills to manage complex projects and programmes.
