Event Details

Utilising PMBOK, a global standard for managing projects, this 2-day Project Management training course will give you an overview of the entire project management process, as well as covering key project management tools that can be used every day.

The importance of delivering business results to specification, on time and within budget, is critical to the success of any project.  And that is exactly what professional project management skills enable you to do - even if it is not officially called a 'project'. The ability to successfully manage projects from beginning to end, no matter their size, is a highly desirable skill in today’s workplace.

In this course you'll learn required skills like estimating and scheduling as well as how to produce project-related documentation like project plan worksheets, charters and communication plans.  Learn how to use planning tools like Gantt and RACI charts, establish baselines and much more.

This dynamic training course is available now throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
