Introduction to Project Management

Target Audience

Project Teams, Senior Officers, Middle and Senior Managers.

Outline

The activities of organisations typically fall into two categories - operations and projects. Operations are ongoing - they are predictable, necessary functions - and they give a charity a solid base. Projects on the other hand are disruptive - they’re time-bound and unique - and when managed correctly, they bring about transformative change.

This half-day workshop is designed for anyone who leads or contributes to change projects within their organisation. It will help you distinguish projects from operations, it will increase your understanding of the project life cycle, and it will provide you with the basic tools and processes for designing and managing projects effectively.
