Overview

The only aim for someone who has to lead a project should be: “To meet the constraints set for the project in time, cost and quality.”

For most people, this means having to balance at least two roles: the technical work you do and the project management role. Add to this your third role, if you are a manager as well. The role of project manager is often on top of the day job and finding time to do this role can be problematical.

With simple to use tools you will be able to read the symptoms of success or failure so that you can act on the information. Learn how to set up the project so you can have the information to exercise control and to manage people who don't report to you but have an input into your projects.

Projects are not simply a matter of following a linear process; there are all manner of real world issues to consider and work on. This programme is designed to give you these street smarts to enable you to be successful, whether you are new to running projects or an old hand.
