A highly intensive 2-day participative intermediate program on project management

The results have been shown – project management definitely helps organizations operate more effectively and efficiently, and helps the organization grow too. Yet, in some cases, it seems to be creeping into the day-to-day workload, and in some cases never seeming to end. You’re not alone.

The reality is that project management is not just restricted to certain industries, or to individuals with certification as a project manager. Lots of us are expected to complete assignments that are not a usual part of our job, and to get the job done well, within our budget, and on time.

This workshop therefore is intended for participants who understand the conceptual phase of a project’s life cycle, including setting goals, creating a vision statement, and creating the Statement of Work. This course will take participants through the remaining three stages: planning, execution, and termination.


This two-day workshop is intended for those who are either already practicing project management but have not had any formal training in it, and/or for those looking for a refresher in project management fundamentals
