Learn the principles of project management
Good project management is of the art of getting a successful outcome using the resources available. This is more important than ever in health and social care where managers are under increasing pressure to deliver better outcomes and greater efficiency in every aspect of their work.
Project management requires a specific set of skills, some of which we possess naturally and can learn to use more effectively. But it also requires knowledge and a well-defined approach.
This one day training session on 4 October in Birmingham, 10 October in Manchester, 13 December in Leeds and 16 January 2018 in London is for everyone who has responsibility for projects or is part of a project team.
The session sets out the common principles of project management and covers the journey from inception to completion. The session covers the rationale for projects, the stages of project management, the role of the project manager and gives useful hints and tips for effective and efficient project management. Scenario based exercises are included to illustrate the concepts involved.
At the end of the training session, delegates will understand:
- The principles of project management

- Critical steps in preparing for a project - planning and costing
- How to make the most of time and resources
