Overview

Project Management has developed from just a specialist activity into
a major process for managing change and innovation. In today’s rapidly
evolving competitive environment, managers and engineers at every
level need an in-depth understanding of the concepts and techniques
required to manage projects. These can be as diverse as new product
development, construction of new manufacturing facilities,
implementing changes in organisational structure and culture and many
other change related programmes.

Project management techniques can also be adapted to manage what, up
until recently, were considered operational procedures. This course
will therefore also help technical managers improve their project
management skills and gain a broader functional and strategic
perspective on general management.

To manage projects successfully, Project Managers not only need an
understanding of planning, monitoring and control techniques, they
also need to appreciate corporate strategy, finance, risk, quality,
human resource and contractual issues. This course is designed to
fulfill this need.
