Course description

This workshop is aimed at technicians involved in running small to medium sized projects in the workplace who have had little or no project management training. The workshop will focus on planning as the foundation for successful project management and participants will take away an accessible, flexible and scalable framework for planning projects.

The aim is to introduce the principles of project planning from initiation through to building a project schedule and provide an opportunity to apply them to a group project.

Objectives of the course include exploring the project:

- overview
- scope
- unknowns
- interactions
- breakdown
- control
- schedule

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

- recognise when a piece of work would benefit from a structured, planned approach
- work through the essential elements of a project plan and apply them to a simple fictional project
- Consider how they might apply the project planning essentials to their own work based projects

This course has been designed to accommodate various learning styles and to allow participants to learn from group discussions and individual reflection on the current practice.
