Strategic Project Management

This course is for project managers across all spheres of the business sector. Project managers, who understand project management principles and how these can be utilised to derive value, will be increasingly in demand.

The purpose of this course is to guide you in the management of project deliverables that meet the strategic objectives of your department (municipality or state-owned company). Often project management is seen as a ‘hard’ skill, while experience has proven that ‘soft’ skills are equally important. This short learning programme focuses on both skills and on stakeholder management.
