Day 1
Fundamentals of Project Management

The basics of project management will be introduced. Further, the role and responsibilities of the project manager will also be discussed.

In this section, the following will be covered:

  • Characteristics of a project
  • Roles and responsibilities of a project manager
  • Importance and influence of project stakeholders
  • Project life cycle
  • Different project structures
Project Management Processes

The project management processes, which entail initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing will be discussed in detail. In order to accomplish a project successfully the project team must:

  • Use a defined approach to adapt to meet project specifications and plans            to meet project and product requirements
  • Comply with requirements to meet stakeholder needs, wants and                expectation
  • Balance the competing demand of scope, time, cost, quality, resources and        risk to produce a quality product or service
Project Integration Management

Project Integration Management involves integrating the respective processes and activities in a synergistic manner. Whilst the processes are complex and important the key intention of Project Integration Management is also to concentrate resources, anticipate potential issues, ensure that the welfare of the stakeholders are taken care of, deal with project issues before they become threatening, and coordinate work from all parties to ensure overall success of the project.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Develop the project charter and the preliminary scope statement
  • Develop project management plan
  • Direct and manage project execution
  • Integrate the processes of project management
  • Monitor and close the project

 

Day 2
The Project “Scope-Resource-Schedule” (SRS) Model

Also known as the “triple constraints” model, a project success is often contingent upon “triple constraints”, i.e. project scope, resource and schedule. A good project management and his team should be capable of delivering high quality and successful projects outcomes within scope, on time using the allocated resources. The relationship among these three “constraints” is such that if any one of the three factors changes, at least one other factor is likely to be affected also.

Participants will learn how to manage the “triple constraints” and meet the challenging demands of a project.

Project Risk Management

This section prepares you to manage and address the challenges and risks of project management by applying the following methods:

  • Risk management planning
  • Risk identification
  • Risk analysis
  • Risk response planning
  • Risk monitoring and control
Project Human Resource Management

Project management also involves applying the right interpersonal skills, team management skills and communication skills, (or human resource management in general) to the team. Human resource planning describes the processes that organise and manage the project team. It further determines the project roles, responsibilities, reporting relationship and communication channels within teams.

In this section, the following will be covered:

  • Planning the human resource
  • Acquiring the project team
  • Developing the project team
  • Managing the project team
