Introduction to Project Management


In this course you will be taken through the knowledge areas of Project Management to deliver on the customer’s expectation. This is the ‘Project Management Body of Knowledge’ or PMBOK. These knowledge areas are a stepby- step process that you can take and use in any organisation – while the environment may change the process remains the same, and that is why it is so powerful.

You will learn the role of a Project Manager and a Project Management Of ce (PMO). You will learn how projects get things done and that the methodology is more than just a set of tools and documentation. You will understand how a Project Manager and PMO  ts in an organisation and the qualities and skills of a project leader.

The course will take you through a real scenario in the workplace to see how the PMBOK sets your project up for success. Through engaging videos and slide packs, you will get an understanding of the PMBOK and Project Management.

This course is a great compliment to our other courses on ‘Agile’ and the Lean Six Sigma Methodology in ‘Competitive Systems and Practices’.
