Course Overview

NEW!! PTP has introduced a new product called Face-to-Face Live. This is where the delegate can log on from anywhere and attend a live training session. Delegates can either join our public course dates (limited to a maximum of 10) or you can arrange a 1-2-1 or a session just for a group of your colleagues even if they are all working from home. Click here for full details. To see forthcoming public course sessions for this course look at the dates to the right of this page.

Most organisations, whether they are in the private or public sector, undertake a certain amount of project work in their business.  These projects may be quite short-term or operating over a long period.  They may be for internal use or client-specific. This course is designed specifically for those who are required to undertake projects as part, or all, of their job role.

The course provides an overview of the techniques required to set up, manage and monitor projects. 

The content is delivered in a business-orientated way enabling you, if you wish, to develop a current project from work and develop it during the day. 

During the day you will enhance your understanding of the needs of pre-project research and look at the key aspects of planning which will make a project successful.  You will identify the constraints which face project managers and discover ways in which these can be overcome.  Also detailed are project planning methodologies, best ways to schedule and deliver a project along with reporting and control methods.

This Project Management course is available throughout the UK.
