Project Management Fundamentals Overview (Module 1)

Industry research shows that a third of all projects are delivered late. To add to this, even more come in over budget or run past the original deadline, and 28% fail altogether. How you lead a project or perform in a project team can dictate the success or failure of each initiative or project that you are involved in, regardless of its size or complexity.

Our interactive course provides you with proven techniques, tools and processes to deliver projects within specification, on time and on budget.

The course is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), current research and best practice industry standards, as well as drawing upon the extensive experience of PM-Partners group’s broad ranging and continuing involvement in assisting organisations to achieve rapid results in project delivery capability.

As its name implies, this course will provide participants with the essential knowledge and skills to both manage a project end-to-end, and/or be an effective and valuable member of the project team.

The course covers the fundamental steps in every project’s life cycle and uses a real-life case study approach to follow a project from conception through to completion and final review.

The focus is on immediate and direct knowledge transfer to the workplace.

Please note: While agile concepts are introduced, this is not an Agile course. PM-Partners offers many Agile courses which can be found in our Course List.

Successful completion of this course will enable participants to:

  • Describe the similarities and differences between an Agile and a Traditional/Waterfall approach within the topic areas below.
  • Assimilate essential tools and disciplines for planning and controlling projects effectively.
  • Scope a project effectively.
  • Create a work breakdown structure and translate this into a reliable schedule.
  • Estimate with a greater degree of accuracy using common-sense and proven techniques.
  • Make successful cost/schedule/scope trade-offs.
  • Assess and manage project risks.
  • Baseline projects and perform timely tracking, reporting and communication; managing stakeholder expectations and communication.
  • Avoid ‘scope-creep’ by identifying, managing and controlling change throughout a project.
  • Close a project effectively.

Trainers of this course will use a case study delivery approach to provide participants with a ‘hands-on’, multi-faceted and challenging learning experience.

Participants will be actively engaged in progressing the project from conception to closure, and in building the necessary documentation and communications tools to do so. Courses are facilitated by our expert team and can be conducted onsite, at our premises or virtually. All courses can be customised to suit your requirements.

Materials: A comprehensive participant handbook is provided.
