Online course description

Project management techniques are becoming increasingly important in competitive business environments to ensure effective communication and delivery of the project on schedule, within a fixed budget. Project Management is becoming a mainstream activity in which most managers will become involved during their careers, therefore it is a critical area of management and a useful in-demand managerial skill. Project management is evolving significantly away from its original roots in construction and engineering and is now relevant to all business contexts.

This course will provide a comprehensive methodology for managing projects. It is therefore imperative for you to have a solid understanding of its strengths and weaknesses in the context of different organisations and scenarios. This course considers the trinity of scope, cost and time, and connects you with the operational aspects of managing projects.
